Health experts around the world have repeatedly explained that while COVID-19 vaccines help control the pandemic, none of them provide 100 percent protection against the virus.
For this reason, those who have received the doses of the respective vaccines can be infected and, according to scientists, there is a simple way to check if someone inoculated has been infected.
A new investigation carried out by the company ZOE and King’s College London, and which involved 4 million people in the world, affirms that sneezing more than usual could indicate the presence of the disease in the case of those who have already been vaccinated.
The main symptoms such as loss of smell, cough, fever, headache and fatigue remain important, but the study authors say that sneezing a lot is “a more common sign of infection in vaccinated people.”
“Interestingly, our data shows that people who had been vaccinated and later tested positive for COVID-19 were more likely to report sneezing as a symptom compared to those who had not received an antidote.”
The researchers say that if a vaccinated person begins sneezing more frequently without an explanation, they should be tested for COVID-19 and isolated.
They also remember to cover themselves with a tissue or the inside of the elbow as sneezing is a key way of spreading viruses. The idea with this is to minimize the spread of droplets that could carry the virus.
