Today, a new variant called BQ1 is becoming the dominant variant. But the study suggests that symptoms might not settle down with the change in variants.
It found that the BA.2 variant caused 75.9 percent of people infected to have symptoms. This is compared to 70 percent for BA.1, 63.8 percent for the Delta variant, and 54.7 percent for the Alpha variant.
Other research has suggested that thousands of vaccinated people are still experiencing many of the symptoms reported in the REACT study.
The ZOE Health study, which collects the reports of people with Covid through a mobile app, found that sore throat is the most common symptom for fully vaccinated people.
This is the ZOE Health study ranking of the most common symptoms for people with two vaccinations:
- Sore throat
- Runny nose
- Blocked nose
- Persistent cough
