The clinical findings of COVID-19 developing with the delta variant show a different course from the classical COVID-19 clinical results. Cold symptoms such as sore throat, runny nose, and headache develop more dominantly than classical findings such as fever . The delta coronavirus variant, first discovered in India, may be causing symptoms not typically seen in COVID-19 patients. These symptoms include stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, hearing loss and joint pain, according to six physicians treating COVID-19 patients across the country .
