Ever heard of Aquaplaning?
Aquaplaning is a condition in which a vehicle  loses control where the main cause is puddles of water, such as rain and flooding. Water that is too large will make it difficult for the car to move or even slip. The main cause of aquaplaning is not only rainwater puddles, but can also be caused by water from other vehicles passing by. When the car passes through a slippery road due to water, it will be dangerous if you are not careful. Car tires will be difficult to control and can result in a collision or accident.
What are the characteristics of aquaplaning?
The first characteristic that can be felt is the sudden sound of the engine sounds louder than usual. This is because the engine that is exposed to the puddle too hard will become hot enough to make a sound.
Sudden change of clutch in gears. Though, you didn't. This condition will make the speed of the vehicle becomes faster so that it is out of control. The next characteristic is, the car feels lighter. This is due to the greater water pressure that can lift and float the car.
In addition, the back of the car on the sides will feel floating. This condition is called fishtailing.

When this happens, slow down slowly and straighten the steering wheel. Do not brake suddenly, find a safe place to stop to avoid an accident.

Omicron, symptoms and how to deal with it

Based on the results of the study, the most common characteristics that indicate a person is infected with the omicron variant of the Covid-19 infection are as follows:

1. Sore throat but no cough
A sore throat accompanied by a cough is one of the common symptoms when someone is declared infected with the Covid-19 virus.

But in the Omicron variant, the sore throat tends to be itchy, dry, even without coughing.

2. Muscle and joint pain
Reporting from the Gavi.org page, the first reports of Omicron symptoms in South Africa showed a reaction to lower back pain.

In addition, this pain also continues to spread to several other areas such as joints, and muscle pain (myalgia).

3. Fatigue
Another symptom of Omicron is fatigue so that the body becomes weak and even easily feels tired even though it is not strenuous activity.

These signs of fatigue are constant because they are usually felt by other variants of Covid-19 sufferers.


4. Headache
A painful headache accompanied by a fever like the flu is an inflammatory reaction that the body is fighting a virus.

In Omicron symptoms, this headache feels throbbing, pressured, and sometimes accompanied by a stabbing feeling of mild to severe intensity.


5. Don't lose your sense of smell
In the previous Covid-19 variant, infected patients will experience impaired sense of smell and taste.

But for the Omicron variant, it's the opposite. Patients do not lose their sense of smell and taste so they still feel normal as usual.
