Reports may come negative if infected with new variants of Omicron


Omicron Sub Variant Ba.2: The sub-variant BA.2 of Omicron Variant is rapidly spreading in the world. Let us tell you that in just 10 weeks it has been detected in 57 countries. The original strain from Omicron is more contagious than BA.1. At the same time, its biggest danger is that even the current corona tests are not able to catch it easily. This means that even after having its symptoms, the corona test report of people is coming negative. In such a situation, we will tell you here what you should do if you get infected with the new variant of Omicron. Let us know.

Why is it difficult to catch the BA.2 sub-variant?

The BA.2 sub-variant, which has been named as the Stealth Omicron variant, is different from the rest of the variants. It lacks such essential mutations which are necessary to detect the presence of coronavirus in the body. Due to which it is also becoming difficult to catch the BA.2 strain with the RT-PCR test. This test is considered a good test for corona. Let us tell you that if you get Kovid symptoms due to infection of BA.2 sub variant, then it may be that your report will come negative after getting tested. Such a case is considered false negative. In such a case, we need to be cautious.

What to do if the report comes negative after being infected?

Do not ignore the mild symptoms of Omicron such as cold, cough and fever. If this happens, get the corona test done immediately. If the report comes negative, then get the test done again after 24 to 48 hours. On the other hand, if the rapid antigen test was done in the first time, then it is necessary to do RT-PCR test in the second time. Correct results are obtained through this test. At the same time, let us tell you that even if the report comes negative even after showing the symptoms, you should isolate yourself.

What are the symptoms of BA-2 sub variant?

Omicron BA.2 has the same characteristics as BA.1 sub-variants. These include symptoms like runny nose, fatigue, headache, persistent cough, difficulty in breathing, muscle pain, sore throat, vomiting and diarrhea.
