IP- While it may be widely known that common symptoms of Covid include fatigue, a sore throat, and headaches, another widespread symptom is cited among sufferers.

Iran PressIran news: According to data gathered by the ZOE Health Study app, diarrhoea is a common symptom of Covid for vaccinated Britons.

Data shows a rise in people reporting this symptom in January 2022 and that some of this was related to the Omicron variant of Covid-19.

However, the ZOE team pointed out that there seemed to be a "wave of other non-Covid tummy bugs going around too."

The team said diarrhoea could be an early symptom of the virus, starting on the first day of infection and worsening throughout the week.

"It usually lasts for an average of two to three days, but can last up to seven days in adults," the ZOE team said.

The data found this symptom has become less prevalent with each variant, as nearly a third of adults over 35 reported having diarrhoea during the Alpha wave, while just one in five said they experienced it during the Omicron and Delta waves.

The people who experienced it during the last two waves had been vaccinated twice or received their booster jab.

The NHS says diarrhoea is common in adults, and the most important thing to do is to stay hydrated.

The health services also advise to stay home, get plenty of rest, and eat food when you can.

If you have diarrhoea and other common Covid symptoms, like a high temperature, a new cough, and a loss or change of your sense of taste or smell, make sure you take a Covid test and follow government guidelines if you test positive.
