Fearing another pandemic, doctors are urging people not to be careless as they have identified a new, fast-spreading Corona variant.

The so-called Eris variant is descended from “Omikron.” In the UK, the new variant is causing a stir – one in seven citizens diagnosed with Covid-19 is said to be affected.

While both the World Health Organization and British health authorities are closely monitoring the situation, doctors are warning people about the main symptoms of Eris.

The new Eris Covid-19 strain is spreading fast.
Brits have been warned about the new “Eris” variant causing a rise in Corona cases nationwide.

According to UK health authorities, it is now the second most common variant in those behind “Arcturus,” which accounts for nearly half of all infection cases at 39.4% and last caused a stir in April.

The new variant is derived from “Omikron” and is scientifically called “EG.5.1.”

Eris can currently be detected in one in four infected people in the UK.

U.K. health authorities have classified “Eris” as a variant of concern, although they do not want to jump to conclusions.

Dr. Mary Ramsay, head of immunization at the U.K. Department of Health, states:

This week’s report continues to note an increase in Covid 19 cases. There has also been a slight increase in hospital admissions in most age groups, particularly among the elderly.
According to Ramsay, overall admissions remain extremely low, and officials are not seeing a similar increase in ICU admissions.

Experts believe that “Eris” will dominate from September when children return to school and adults to work or university and people will spend more time indoors.

These are the main symptoms of the new Corona variant.
Physicians warn that sore throat, runny nose,, or stuffy nose may indicate the new Covid strain. Sneezing, dry and wet coughs, and headaches are also on the list. Other vital signs to watch for are Hoarseness, muscle pain, and an altered sense of smell.

Health Experts continue to investigate the new variant and update the spectrum of symptoms. Shortness of breath, loss of smell and fever do not appear to be associated with the “Eris” variant.
