“Anyone who has these symptoms, I strongly encourage you to get tested, because you could be infected with the Delta variant,” Bratzler told a news conference. The Oklahoman.

Symptoms of Covid-19 can vary greatly from person to person and can include coughing, shortness of breath, fatigue, body aches, loss of taste or smell, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

“The Delta variant now accounts for more than 20 percent of new COVID-19 cases in the US,” Bratzler said. “This is likely to be the main variant in Oklahoma,” Bratzler said.
