Corona: According to a British study, these are the five most common Covid 19 symptoms

A corona vaccination usually protects against a serious course, not against a disease. If you are sick, the symptoms seem to vary depending on the vaccination status.

London – A few days ago, the Federal Minister of Health warned of a new corona wave. “We are clearly at the beginning of an autumn and winter wave,” Karl Lauterbach (SPD) said in Berlin on Friday (30 September).

If this turns out to be true, many people in this country will become infected with the corona virus, even if they have already received a vaccination. According to the vaccination dashboard of the Federal Ministry of Health (as of September 28), 64.8 million people received at least one vaccination dose, of which 63.5 million were basically immunized. 51.7 million have received a booster, 8.0 million people have already received a second booster vaccination.

Covid-19 infection: fewer symptoms over a shorter period in vaccinated people

The symptoms of Covid 19 infected people seem to vary. This applies to unvaccinated, single and double-vaccinated individuals. This is the result of the British study “Zoe Covid Symptom Study” (updated 13 September 2022), in which more than four million people have already participated. Those infected with the coronavirus, regardless of the virus variant, document their signs of illness via smartphone application. The result is then evaluated by researchers working at, among others, King’s College in London and London’s Guy’s Hospital.

According to the study, a fundamental result is that the symptoms in the three different groups – unvaccinated, single-vaccinated, double-vaccinated – do not differ significantly. “However, fewer symptoms were reported over a shorter period of time by those who had already been vaccinated.” This may indicate that their course of the disease is less severe and that they recover more quickly.

Most common symptoms of a Covid 19 infection: Sneezing can be a sign

According to the study, it is curious that vaccinated people who tested positive report sneezing more often than unvaccinated people. Therefore, people who have to sneeze frequently after the vaccination should do a corona test. The persistent cough, which ranks fifth, is no longer the main indicator of Covid disease in those who have been vaccinated twice.

Cherry as a healthy seasoning: If you use herbs and spices, you can refine dishes without using table salt. Basil, coriander, curry, ginger, thyme, etc. is also part of a balanced diet.

Bananas are high in potassium and low in sodium, making them a real heart booster.  Other types of fruit and nuts are also high-potassium and low-sodium foods and are therefore suitable for a heart-healthy diet.

There is debate about whether low levels of vitamin C in the blood promote heart disease.  Citrus fruits such as lemons, oranges and other fruits such as papaya contain a particularly high amount of vitamin C. It is said to strengthen the blood vessels, protect against oxidative stress and inhibit the absorption of cholesterol.

Leafy greens like spinach contain antioxidants, fiber and healthy fats to help protect arteries.  Broccoli is also a real health booster with vitamins C, E, potassium, calcium and fiber - all important for a healthy heart.

Dark chocolate (it must be at least 70 percent cocoa) contains flavonoids and other compounds that have a positive effect on cholesterol levels. There is a catch: chocolate is high in sugar and unhealthy fat, so it should not be eaten in large quantities. Raw cacao is a healthy alternative.

Omega-3 fatty acids are said to increase good cholesterol, reduce inflammation in the body and reduce the risk of heart disease. There are many in saltwater fish such as trout, mackerel, salmon and sardines. Seeds such as chia and sesame are also good sources of omega-3.

Regular consumption of fiber reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases. In particular, legumes such as lentils and beans provide a lot of fiber, but so do whole grain products, grains such as amaranth and spelt, fruits and vegetables.

For the five most common symptoms, those that the study describes as “traditional” are missing in all three groups. These include loss of smell, shortness of breath and fever. These are further on the list. Among the fully vaccinated, loss of smell is sixth, fever eighth and shortness of breath 29th.

Among the unvaccinated, loss of smell ranks ninth, and shortness of breath 30. This suggests, according to the study, “that previously recorded symptoms change with evolving virus variants.”
