Does the Delta variant cause different symptoms?
Its not clear yet. Reports have surfaced in the UK that Delta may cause different symptoms than other variants. Headache, sore throat, and a runny nose are now among the most commonly reported symptoms.
But the data are preliminary and a milder symptom profile could be due to the variant infecting mostly younger people who are least vaccinated.
