In fact, most of the people you know have recently been infected with coronavirus or had it in the past, yet you’re as fit as a bull. Here are seven symptoms that you may have been infected with but didn’t realize.

If you look around, it looks like everyone has been infected with COVID-19 in the past or is now infected with the Omicron variant of COVID-19. You might think you’re one of the lucky ones if you haven’t been diagnosed or been ill yet. Perhaps you were sick but didn’t know it because your symptoms were so minor.

While the Delta strain and those that came before they were defined by distinct symptoms such as a persistent cough, fever, and loss of taste and smell, Omicron appears to be more difficult to detect due to symptoms that might easily be mistaken for the flu, a cold, or a sore throat. If you’ve been fatigued and wanted to tune out the world in the last few months but didn’t know why here are seven subtle indicators that you may have been infected without realizing it:

You were sick but not tested

Omicron consequences are modest in fully vaccinated people, unlike prior variants. Despite the fact that the first cases of Omicron were discovered in late 2021, the variant may have existed for several months. Some people didn’t show any signs or symptoms at all. You may have had coronavirus and healed without realizing it if you didn’t feel unwell enough to be tested.

It was flurona, not the flu

You had a fever, coughed for days, and were weary, but the doctor didn’t think it was the flu. Because the flu season and the pandemic coincided, it could have been Omricon. This year, doctors are finding cases of Flurona, which is a flu and coronavirus infection that occurs at the same time. Dr. Nadav Davidovich told CNN that Israel is currently experiencing a high incidence of influenza along with an increase in coronavirus morbidity, indicating a high risk of combined infection.

Cough, runny nose, sore throat, fever, headache, and weariness are all symptoms of the flu and coronavirus, which all affect the respiratory system. Both spread and are contagious by droplet fragments ejected into the air and distributed when a sick person speaks, breathes, or coughs.

Unusual hair fall

It’s possible that you had the virus if you’ve noticed unexpected hair loss. According to research published in The Lancet approximately a year ago, 22% of patients experience hair loss in the six months following infection, with women being at higher risk.

The researchers studying a range of long-term symptoms associated with the virus found that 359 out of 1,655 patients in Wuhan experienced hair loss. Hair loss, coupled with weariness, shortness of breath, dizziness, and joint discomfort, is a primary symptom of long-term COVID-19, according to their findings.

Sombody was sick in the family

You may have been infected and didn’t realize it if everyone in your family was sick except you. Many infected people have mild or no symptoms at all, and Omicron is said to cause even milder symptoms than other variations, especially in people who have been vaccinated.

You experienced tummy issues

Although the coronavirus causes coughing and shortness of breath in some people, it does not affect everyone. For some people, diarrhea is the first and only symptom of an infection. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the United States acknowledged this symptom and added it to a long list of others.

People with a weaker immune system or immunosuppression are more likely to have diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms after an Omricon infection, according to an NBC Chicago report. They went on to say that diarrhea usually appears around the time of infection. According to specialists at Johns Hopkins Hospital, roughly 20% of patients may experience diarrhea shortly after infection.

Eye infection

According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, ocular inflammation, or conjunctivitis, is a viral symptom that is extremely infrequent. Red eyes were first reported as a symptom of coronavirus in late March, when Chelsea Ernest, a nurse at a sheltered housing facility where 50 of the 180 residents caught the virus and 37 died, noted that all virus patients had red eyes.

She told CNN that “this is something I witnessed in everyone.Their eyes looked like they were suffering from allergies.” She added that in patients, “the white part of the eye isn’t red. It’s more like they have red shadows on the outside. We had patients whose red eyes were the only symptom we saw, and they went to the hospital and died there.”

You had a strange rash or infection in toes

A small Spanish investigation discovered five different types of skin rashes, including what they name COVID toe, among patients at several hospitals.

The rash appears to be more common in young people and lasts for many days, according to the results. The researchers were startled to observe such a vast number and variety of rash types in coronavirus patients, despite the fact that a rash is a well-known sign of several viruses.

There have been numerous reports of “coronavirus toes,” a rash that appears on patients’ feet even when they have no other symptoms, but the study’s lead researcher, Dr. Ignacio Garcia-Doble, said the most common form is a maculopapular rash, which consists of small dots, flat red bumps that tend to appear on the upper body.
