Covid-19 Update

Omicron Variant

The Omicron Covid-19 variant is now the dominant variant throughout the UK and accounts for about 90% of positive cases in Northern Ireland.

The three main symptoms of Covid-19 were originally:

  • New and continuous cough

  • Fever

  • Loss of taste and smell

However, the omicron variant's symptoms seem to be milder among many people and are often compared to a common cold.
