Isn’t COVID-19 a respiratory virus?

COVID-19 is a respiratory virus and impacts your lungs. Additional studies have found muscle pain as a common symptom. Read more about it here.

 

Dr. Charu Dutt Arora, a COVID-19 expert who works with medical services at the Asian Institute of Medical Sciences, has made some observations. He has noticed muscle pain as one of the biggest recent symptoms.

Studies have shown that “63 percent of the patients infected by the Delta variant and 42 percent of the patients infected by the Omicron variant have reported back pain as one of the major symptoms.”

Back pain and muscle aches are not new symptoms of COVID-19. These symptoms tend to linger after an infection.

“Omicron patients tend to have more back pain and less loss of smell and taste.”
