The Lancet: Different genders and ages have different symptoms after COVID-19 infected
Different genders and ages have different symptoms after COVID-19 infected. Since the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, mutant strains have continued to appear. At present, the delta mutant strain has become the most important COVID-19 epidemic in the world. The current outbreaks of OVID-19 in many places in countries are also caused by delta mutant infections. .
It is worth noting that the symptoms after the infection of the Delta mutant strain have been different from the symptoms caused by the initial new coronavirus strain infection.
On July 29, 2021, the journal The Lancet Digital Health published an article from King’s College London titled: Early detection of COVID-19 in the UK using self-reported symptoms: a large-scale , prospective, epidemiological surveillance study.
The study found that after infection with COVID-19, the symptoms of the elderly group (60 years and older) and the young group (16-59 years) are significantly different, and in the early stages of infection, the symptoms of men and women are different.
In addition, the study also pointed out that the most common symptoms after infection with the delta mutant are headache, sore throat, and runny nose.
The research team examined 18 symptoms of people infected with COVID-19. The most important symptoms of COVID-19 first detected include loss of smell, chest pain, persistent cough, abdominal pain, blisters on the feet, sore eyes, and abnormal muscle pain.
Men are more likely to experience symptoms of shortness of breath, fatigue, chills, and fever, while women are more likely to experience symptoms of loss of smell, chest pain, and persistent coughing.
However, loss of taste/olfaction is meaningless in people over 60 years of age, and infected people over 80 years of age rarely experience this symptom. The more common symptom in the elderly (60-79 years and over 80) is diarrhea. Although fever is a known symptom of the disease, it is not an early feature of the disease in any age group.
In addition, the study also pointed out that the most common symptoms after infection with the Delta mutant are headache, sore throat, and runny nose.
This study reminds us that people of different ages and people of different genders have different symptoms after being infected with COVID-19. With the evolution of the new coronavirus, the symptoms of people infected with different mutant strains are also different. Therefore, it needs to be done according to the specific situation.
