Covid: The 'No 1' symptom seen in the UK right now – making up 75% of symptomatic cases

The scientists behind the ZOE COVID Study are keen for users to keep contributing their symptoms.

The team pointed out that they continued to update and refine their prediction algorithm to take into account the impact of vaccines on symptoms and the emergence of new variants.

For example, Omicron has a different set of common symptoms compared with the “classic three” original coronavirus symptoms of cough, fever and loss of smell, which the government continues to use.

“Since the early days of the app our Contributors have been able to report the results of PCR, lateral flow and antibody blood tests,” the ZOE scientists said.
