A former Miss Universe model says coronavirus has left her with "the most random" and "feral" symptom.

Australian Olivia Molly Rogers joked online that she was relieved to discover her sudden non-stop burping was caused by Covid-19.

The author and mental health advocate revealed to her 175,000 Instagram followers on Monday that she cannot stop burping.

Olivia who tested positive with the virus after her partner Justin fell down with it, took to social media to ask if anyone else had been hit by the unusual side effect.

She wrote on her Instagram story: "I have the most random (but kind of funny) symptom. I can’t stop burping. I googled it and apparently it’s part of the gastrointestinal symptoms of Covid, not that common though. Has anyone else had this with Covid?"

Olivia revealed another symptom was "really itchy eyes".

Once a PCR Covid test came back positive she told her followers: "Good to know my consistent burping wasn’t just me being a bit feral."

On a later Instagram post shared on Tuesday, Olivia wrote: "The only positive of 2022 so far has been my covid test result."

She continued: "Day 4 of symptoms & it hasn’t been much fun at all, but I am doing my best to focus on the little things I can control & the silver linings of the situation – at least it’s now and not in 4 weeks when our wedding is!

"Feeling grateful for: our gorgeous friends who have dropped off supplies & taken Ziggy for walks (you guys are the best), our home, Zig, food delivery, sunshine on our lawn, books, puzzles & all of the streaming services.. we’ve binged a lot of shows and movies over the past week. I know we are very lucky to have access to all of these things."

Olivia added: "Sending love to anyone else with the spicy cough. I hope you don’t experience as many burps as I have the weirdest symptom for sure. X"

Follower Georgina Musk commented on the post sharing that she has also been hit with a spate of burping.

She said: "Literally have the burps too it’s so weird."

Aussie fitness influencer and Keep It Cleaner co-founder Lauren Henshaw has also revealed covid has caused her unexpected problems that feel like growing pains.

She said: "I have not had any head symptoms (headache or dizziness) so I have spent most of the days reading and journalling outside and taking time to slow down and rest.

"Anyone with achy legs (I felt like I had entered the Olympic squatting competition combined with growing pains), I found putting them up in the air helped a lot."
