According to scientists, the virus strains’ symptoms are not severe. An expert on infectious diseases at Fortis Hospital in Mulund, Dr. Anita Mathew, says that many of the new patients have no symptoms. According to Dr. Anita Mathew, “many patients have accidental COVID-19,” which means that they tested positive for the coronavirus infection when they were hospitalized for another health issue.

Few people have had the typical symptoms of other illnesses, such as losing one’s sense of smell or taste. Dr. Mathew said that while many of them complain of colds and coughs, there isn’t much testing or self-isolation.
