With the coronavirus ripping through America again, thanks to the “highly transmissible” Delta variant, you may be thinking every sneeze or tickle in your throat could be The One. But there are some fairly distinctive symptoms that can indicate a COVID infection, and some telltale signs of a Delta infection. If you feel any of them, get tested. Read on for 5 essential things you need to know about what people with Delta usually feel—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don’t miss these Sure Signs You’ve Already Had COVID.


You May Feel Cold-Like Symptoms

“If you’ve not yet been vaccinated, then the symptoms are more recognisable to the traditional original ranking,” according to the Zoe Symptom Project, which ranked the new order of symptoms, “however we can still observe some changes from when COVID-19 first appeared over a year ago.

Sore Throat
Runny Nose
Persistent cough

Loss of smell comes in at number 9 and shortness of breath comes far down the list at number 30, indicating the symptoms as recorded previously are changing with the evolving variants of the virus.” Keep reading for the rest of the symptoms.

You May Feel Classic COVID Symptoms

Does the Delta variant have different symptoms than the COVID from before? No with one caveat. “It’s the same old symptoms,” Dr. Robert Murphy, a professor of infectious disease at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine and the executive director for The Institute for Global Health, said to WGN. “It just transmits easier, causes more lung disease, which we know already happens. So it’s the same thing—just a little worse.” Accordingly, look for:

Fever or chills
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Muscle or body aches
Sore throat
New loss of taste or smell
New fatigue
Nausea or vomiting
Congestion or runny nose

If You are Younger, You May Get “Sicker, Quicker”

“Many COVID patients are younger than before. ‘Younger, quicker, sicker’ is our description,” Dr. Stuart Bell, vice president of medical affairs at MedStar Good Samaritan and MedStar Union Memorial hospitals in Baltimore, tells the Baltimore Sun. “Certainly, more are getting sick than had previously.”

If You Are Vaccinated, You May Feel This if You Get COVID

You’ve heard about breakthrough infections, and since no vaccine is 100% effective, it is possible you could get COVID after being vaccinated. The good news is the vaccine can still help save your life. “When a vaccinated person tests positive for COVID-19, most either have no symptoms or have very mild symptoms, and it rarely results in hospitalization or death,” says UC David Health. “Their symptoms are more like those of a common cold, such as cough, fever or headache, with the addition of significant loss of smell.”

What to Do If You Think You May COVID Symptoms

If you think you have a COVID infection, get a COVID test ASAP. There is no “special Delta test” you need. “You need to know if you have COVID or not, you don’t need to know if you have Delta,” says Dr. Murphy, “because all the treatments for COVID work the same for Delta. So it’s not going to change your treatment plan.” So get tested accordingly, and to protect your life and the lives of others, don’t visit any of these 35 Places You’re Most Likely to Catch COVID.
