Another lesson that he learned from Omicron is it is attacking in a wave-like pattern. He said that Omicron will make you feel so much muscle pain, headache, and excessive sweating for an hour and then later on you’ll feel better like you never been sick at all. The pattern will continue like a loop within the day.
He said on his TikTok post that wearing face mask will be helpful but it doesn’t guarantee that you will not get infected of the virus.
On his 3rd to 4th day of isolation, Doc Ong reveals that he can hardly speak because of excessive coughing and sore throat. “Sobrang sakit talaga,” said Ong while pointing at his throat.
