Experts say BA.2 symptoms don’t seem to be that different from Omicron or Delta. “This is the same virus, SARS coronavirus 2, so we’re seeing the same symptoms,” Dr. Michael Angarone, an associate professor of medicine in infectious diseases at Northwestern University, told NBC Chicago.

According to the most recent data gathered by the ZOE COVID Symptom Study, the five most common symptoms of Omicron and BA.2 infection are the same as those associated with the Delta variant: Runny nose, headache, fatigue, sneezing, and sore throat.

According to anecdotal reports, some people are experiencing more dizziness and fatigue  with BA.2 than with previous variants.

One Symptom Less Likely

The ZOE COVID researchers say that one symptom is much less likely now than earlier in the pandemic: Loss of smell. In research published in The Lancet last month, the scientists found that 52.7% of people infected with Delta lost their sense of smell, while only 16.7% of those with Omicron did.
