5 Delta variant may not give you more symptoms
Some studies suggest that the delta variant strain does make you sicker compared to the original COVID-19 because this variant makes more people hospitalized, but others refute this idea.
Infection with the Delta variant strain causes the same symptoms as infection with the previous new coronavirus: fever, chills, cough, difficulty breathing, loss of taste and smell, headache, and nasal congestion.
However, there are some early indications that cough and loss of smell may be less common symptoms of infection with the Delta mutant strain. As with the previous mutations, vaccinated people usually have milder symptoms and are less likely to be hospitalized or die from the infection.
