(Smiley N. The change is intended to maximise activity in the economy and education while minimising the risk of people passing on the virus, he said. Pool/The Dallas Morning News) (Smiley N. Pool / Staff Photographer) By Marin Wolf 5:56 PM on Jan 14, 2022 CST — Updated just now More than 480,000 COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in Dallas County, and that number will likely keep growing quickly as the omicron variant spreads. Previously, people with covid-19 had to self-isolate for a minimum of seven days. For some patients, COVID-19 has been little more than a cold and several days of isolation. But the virus has plagued others with what is known as long COVID, a range of debilitating symptoms that continue for months after someone’s initial infection. Matthew Taylor, chief executive of the NHS Confederation, said: “This is a pragmatic move which leaders will welcome if it can mean more health and care workers who are well enough can return to the frontline, providing it does not significantly add to the risk of the virus spreading.

Dr. Michael Brode, medical director at University of Texas Health Austin’s Post-COVID-19 Program, said in a webinar on Friday that some COVID-19 symptoms that aren’t often spoken about, like dizziness and high heart rate, can make it difficult for people to return back to their pre-COVID selves. Van-Tam, whose appearances in televised covid-19 briefings have been widely praised, has been on secondment to the Department of Health from the University of Nottingham since 2017. Here is some of what Brode has learned after caring for coronavirus patients for the last two years. What symptoms should I watch for related to omicron? The omicron variant is different from its predecessors in that it seems to cause milder illness, especially for people who are vaccinated against the virus. UK prime minister Boris Johnson thanked Van-Tam “for his extraordinary contribution to our country and his invaluable advice throughout the pandemic”. It can also present with some different symptoms.

While the first few strains of COVID-19 caused about 50% of people to lose their sense of taste and smell, Brode said only about 15% to 25% of people lose them with omicron. “Endemicity assumes that there’s stable circulation of the virus, at predictable levels with predictable waves of transmission… that doesn’t rely on external forces being placed in order to maintain that stability,” Catherine Smallwood said at a press conference on Tuesday . The symptoms people should be watching for during the omicron surge are cough, fatigue, congestion and a runny nose. And even though the new variant is supposedly milder than other strains, that doesn’t mean it will feel mild to those who are infected. We can’t just sit back and see a stable rate of transmission. “Milder does not necessarily mean mild,” said Brode, who is an assistant professor in the Dell Medical School Department of Internal Medicine. “There’s still a lot of people who feel quite sick or like they’re having the worst cold or flu they’ve ever had. There were thousands fewer admissions for meningitis, flu, tonsillitis and pneumonia and other conditions as the nation went into lockdown, schools closed and children’s social contacts significantly reduced.
