If you look around you it seems that everyone has been infected with the corona, if in the past and especially now following the Omicron variant.
If you have not yet been diagnosed or contracted corona, you may feel like you are one of the few lucky ones.
Or maybe, just maybe, you already had corona and did not understand it because your symptoms were so mild.
While the Delta variant and those that preceded the omicron were characterized by unique symptoms such as persistent cough, fever, and loss of taste and smell, the omicron appears to be more difficult to diagnose thanks to fairly generic symptoms, which can easily look like flu, colds or sore throats.
So if you've felt a little tired and turned off (and between us, who hasn't felt that way) in the last few months but didn't really know what was going on, here are some relatively quiet signs that you may have been infected with corona, and all this without having an antibody test:

You did not feel well but were not tested
Unlike previous versions, omicron symptoms tend to be mild in fully vaccinated people.
Although the first cases of the Omicron were observed in late 2021, the variant could have been spun long before that.
Some people may not have had noticeable symptoms.
What this means is that if you did not feel sick enough to consider getting tested, you may have had a corona and recovered without knowing it.

You thought you had the flu, but it was Florona
You had a fever for days, a cough and you were exhausted, but the doctor did not diagnose the flu.
It could have been a corona, because the flu season and the winter corona epidemic coincided.
This year, doctors are seeing cases of Florona - a condition of simultaneous infection with the flu and corona viruses.
"We are currently seeing a situation of high influenza morbidity in parallel with an increase in corona morbidity, so there is a high chance of cases of combined infection," said Dr. Nadav Davidovich, director of the Ben Gurion University School of Public Health and a member of the epidemiology team advising the Ministry of Health. Corona plague, in an interview with CNN.
Both the flu and the corona are viruses that damage the respiratory system and cause symptoms that some overlap: cough, runny nose, sore throat, fever, headache and fatigue.
Both also spread and infect in a similar way: through droplet fragments emitted into the air and carried in it when a sick person speaks, breathes or coughs.
Your hair falls out in quantities
If you notice unusual hair loss, it could be because you have already contracted corona.
A study published in The Lancet about a year ago found that about a quarter of corona patients (22 percent) suffer from hair loss in the six months after infection, and women are at higher risk of suffering from the phenomenon.
The researchers, who examined a variety of long-term symptoms of corona, found that 359 out of 1,655 patients hospitalized in Wuhan city of China suffered from hair loss.
According to the findings, hair loss is a primary symptom of long-term cobweb, along with fatigue, shortness of breath, dizziness and joint pain.
Sucks but passes.

Those close to you have already been infected
If the corona came to your home and everyone was infected except you, you may have been infected and did not understand it.
Many people who have been infected with this virus have mild symptoms or no symptoms at all, and Omicron reportedly produces even milder symptoms than other versions - especially in vaccinated people.
You had a mess in your stomach
Corona is a respiratory disease, but not everyone coughs or gets shortness of breath.
For some diarrhea may be the first and only sign of infection.
The American Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) addressed this symptom and added it to the list of possible symptoms (although for the sake of fairness this list has been greatly expanded and expanded to include almost every known symptom).
According to a report on NBC Chicago, people with a weak immune system or immunosuppression are more likely to experience diarrhea or other gastrointestinal-related symptoms following micronutrient infection.
They added that the diarrhea appears near the time of infection.
Johns Hopkins Hospital experts also noted that about 20 percent may suffer from diarrhea shortly after infection.
You had an eye infection
Ocular inflammation, or conjunctivitis, may be a sign of corona, but it is very rare, according to the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
Reports of red eyes as a sign of corona began in late March, when Chelsea Ernest, a nurse working in sheltered housing where 50 of the 180 residents contracted the virus, and 37 died, said all corona patients she saw had red eyes.
She told CNN that "this is something I have witnessed in everyone. Their eyes looked like they were suffering from allergies."
She added that in patients, "the white part of the eye is not red. It's more like they have red shadows on the outside. We had patients whose red eyes were the only symptom we saw, and they went to the hospital and died there."
Did you have a strange rash?

You suffered from a strange rash or infection in your toes
A small Spanish study has found five types of rashes on the skin, including what they call Covid toe, which have been diagnosed in corona patients who have been hospitalized in different hospitals.
According to the findings, the rash appears mainly in young patients and tends to stay for several days.
Although a rash is a familiar symptom of some viruses, the researchers noted that they were surprised to see a large number and variety of rash types in corona patients.
There have been many reports of "corona toes" - a rash that appears on patients' feet even in the absence of other symptoms - but the study's lead researcher, Dr. Ignacio Garcia-Doble, said the most common form of rash in the study was a maculopapular rash - which included small dots. Flat red bumps, which tended to appear on the upper torso.
