Even as the threat of Covid19 resurfaces with the detection of JN.1 variant, let’s have a look at what the symptoms are: 

  1. Fever, runny nose, sore throat and headaches
  2. Shortness of breath
  3. Muscle aches 
  4. Change in or loss of taste or smell

The World Health Organization (WHO) emphasizes that symptoms linked to this variant are generally mild to moderate. 

On the other hand, the Union Health Ministry has urged states to intensify Covid surveillance to curb its potential spread. 

It should also be noted that the variant has enhanced capabilities to evade our immune systems. The situation calls for heightened vigilance and proactive measures to understand and manage the impact of this emerging variant in the country.
