According to the latest figures revealed by the Ministry of Health, the accumulated incidence in Spain continues to rise. This is logical because of the entrance on the scene of New Kovid variants, BA.4, BA.5 and Centaurus that, although they are less severe and in most cases only mild cases, they are much more contagious than the maternal version, Omicron.
But new variants have led to the advent of not only Seventh wave in our country in the middle of summerBut they have revolutionized what we knew about the virus so far. We have new symptoms in our bodies, shorter incubation times or changes in the permanence of COVID.
How long does covid last now?
The latest study from French Public Health indicates that symptoms of BA.4 and BA5, the latest sub-lineage of microns that are increasingly present in global cases, They have been reduced to four days as compared to the seven days running with the BA.1 version Of Omicron.
In this context, ‘The Lancet’, in a scientific report published in its journal, highlighted that the symptoms associated with Kovid-19 in people infected with Omicron are less in the last three days. The study, in more than 60,000 vaccinated people in the United Kingdom, determined that those with the two doses plus the booster suffered symptoms of differing 4.4 days on average,
However, those who had three doses and were infected with Delta variant, symptomatic for a median of 7.7 days,
remember that these are most common symptoms Among those affected:

How long does it take for the virus to disappear from the body?
One of the questions that has been raised the most since the outbreak of the pandemic is how long does it take for the virus to be eliminated from the body of an infected person. A recent report published by BMJ Journals followed the development of more than 4,500 residents of Italy’s Reggio Emilia region.
This population was chosen because it is one of the points where the onset of covid in Europe was more forceful. The results concluded that the virus takes a long time to be eliminated from the body. Average of 30 days after the first positive result in a testand average 36 days after the first symptoms appear,
On the other hand, U.S. National Institutes of Health Another study said that the coronavirus can persist for months after the onset of symptoms, especially in cases involving persistent covid and chronic symptoms.
Thus, it is possible to give a negative test, even if the virus remains somewhat Long in the body and not contagious.
