Coronavirus Variants: The story of Corona has once again returned from where it started. This epidemic that started from China has once again started wreaking havoc here. In the midst of increasing cases, new information about new variants of Kovid is also continuously coming out. This is the reason why instructions have been given to conduct genome sequencing of every Covid positive report in India. Let us tell you which variants remain a threat to the world at this time.

Corona is showing its new forms all over the world. Talking about China, at present, most of the cases here are inspired by the BF.7 strain of the Omicron variant of the corona virus. This variant has also been found in India. However, a big threat regarding Corona has not yet emerged in India. Today 201 cases of corona have been reported in the country, which is more than the previous day.

BF.7 is dangerous because it causes upper respiratory infection. Due to this, accumulation starts in the upper parts of the chest and near the throat, due to which there is difficulty in breathing. Fever, sore throat, runny nose and cough etc. are among its symptoms. Some people may also have abdominal symptoms such as vomiting and diarrhea.

BF.7 variant causing havoc in these countries as well

BF.7 has been found in many other countries around the world, including the US, UK, Belgium, Germany, France and Denmark, but it may not necessarily prove equally dangerous in countries other than China. Since 2019, now China is once again battling such a widespread corona outbreak.

XBB variant is found in 40 to 50 percent people

There have also been cases of the sub-variant XBB of the Omicron variant. Dr. NK Arora, head of the Indian SARS-CoV-2 Genomics Consortium (INSACOG), said that this is the strain across the country and 40 to 50 percent of the Kovid patients are getting XBB infection. It has been said to be 5 times more deadly than the delta variant. This sub-variant was first identified in Singapore and America. However, the viral WhatsApp message regarding its symptoms is completely wrong.
