People vaccinated against Covid-19 often report the presence of the same symptom, diarrhea.
Nearly 79% of the French population is fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Vaccines administered against this disease can reduce the severity of symptoms and limit contagiousness. But contamination remains possible even for vaccinated people.
In the United Kingdom, researchers have noticed the prevalence of a symptom for people who have received the vaccine. Indeed, those who were vaccinated with the Omicron or Delta strain experienced the same symptom reported via the UK ZOE Health Study app. Those affected have reported the presence of diarrhea, as reported by The Independent. The data prove that the evocation of this digestive sign is also on the increase.
Monitor your hydration
Scientists believe that the presence of diarrhea could be an early sign of the virus, it would appear from the first day of infection and worsen as the week progresses. “It usually lasts an average of two to three days, but can last up to seven days in adults“, reported the ZOE team. Based on the collection of data related to Covid-19, diarrhea is less prevalent with the Omicron and Delta variants than it was with Alpha.
For those who suffer from diarrhoea, it is recommended to adopt a suitable diet (rice cooked in salted water, cooked vegetables, etc.). And to maintain good hydration to avoid any risk of dehydration.
