A rash may appear in children infected with the omicron strain of coronavirus. This was stated on the air of the British TV channel Sky News by Doctor David Lloyd.

According to him, the disease manifests itself differently in adults and children. In this regard, parents should pay attention to the appearance of the following symptoms in children: fatigue, headache, loss of appetite, and rash. The doctor noted that the rash in patients with coronavirus was observed earlier, but only in a small number of infected. Now the rash appears in about 15% of children infected with the omicron strain.

On November 26, the World Health Organization (WHO) designated the strain of coronavirus B.1.1.529, found in southern Africa, with the Greek letter Omicron. This variety has a large number of mutations, a number of which are of concern to WHO. Several changes in the spike protein of the virus at once can potentially make it difficult to neutralize the pathogen with antibodies, which can affect the effectiveness of vaccines.
