OREANDA-NEWS. According to experts, one of the most discussed variants of coronavirus in recent years - the British strain - may have its own special characteristics that distinguish it from the main type of infection.

According to scientists from the UK, which are based on the descriptions of the clinical picture by the patients themselves, the new strain may be accompanied by severe muscle pain. Moreover, as noted by patients, there may be a feeling that not only muscles but also bones ache, reports aif.ru.

 Also, patients note increased fatigue and the appearance of blisters on the legs. As a rule, infected people ignore such signs, mistaking them for the manifestation of other diseases. In addition, there is a suspicion that the "British" strain also provokes hearing problems. As a rule, the deterioration of the patient's condition occurs quickly and abruptly, and the symptoms can appear unexpectedly, the researchers explained.

The rest of the symptoms of the new variant of the virus are similar and common to those found in the original version of the coronavirus. This is a high temperature (39 and above or persistent 37-37.2), dry cough, sore throat, headaches, loss of smell.
