Unusual new Omicron symptom emerges
People infected with Covid are often said to be suffering from a new Omicron symptom.
Many are reporting they have cold-like symptoms when they develop it. However, there are now complaints of a new tell-tale sign which those with the disease complain about.
Those using the ZOE tracker app have cited ear pain as another symptom of the virus. Last year, a study by a team of Stanford University experts and Dr Konstantina Stankovic, found that the Omicron variant could cause problems with the ear.
