I have contracted Omicron despite taking precautions. My symptoms were joint pains, chills and a scratchy throat which was followed by a slightly sore throat -
This was only on the first day ! And every day my symptoms reduce greatly. I’m glad I took both my vaccines as I believe that it prevents the disease from progressing by 85 percent .
I urge everyone else to do the same if you haven’t done so already .
I hope and pray that this variant marks the end of the pandemic .."
