Covid and Centaurus variant: the symptoms to recognize


Let's find out everything there is to know about the new Centaurus variant and its symptoms.

In recent days we hear a lot about the Centaurus variant and the new symptoms associated with it. It is a mutation of Omicron BA.2.75 which has recently arrived in Italy and which according to some virologists could increase in the near future.
Being still new, the news about it are still few, however it is already possible to recognize it for some symptoms . Let's find out which are the most important.

Centaurus variant: what it is and how it works

As already mentioned Centaurus is the name that has been given to the new viariante Covid which begins to arrive also in Italy.


At the moment it is not yet known whether it is one of those destined to disappear immediately or to last over time. What is certain, at least for the moment, is that it is a more contagious variant but also less serious than the others. Again according to what has been expressed by various virologists, the news arriving from countries where the variant has already taken root, in fact, indicate it as less pathogenic than the previous ones.

Centaurus variant: incubation and symptoms

At the moment, the news regarding the new variant are very few. Typically the incubation period looks the same. And the same can be said for the Centaurus variant and how long it lasts.

The symptoms change a bit. In addition to those that everyone knows and among which we remember fever, muscle aches and colds there are in fact migraines, and night sweats. It is not said, however, that with the passage of time new ones will not appear. A bit like it is happening for the long Covid for which new symptoms have been added, albeit not officially, to the list of those already known.

Going to the good news, we therefore reiterate that the new variant turns out to be highly contagious but much less dangerous than those faced so far. A fact that bodes well for subsequent ones that, according to medicine, could lead to an endemic disease and with which to live in a simpler and, above all, relaxed way. Obviously, the invitation to protect yourself is always important and able to make the virus less dangerous.
