BF.7 is a master at dodging immunity, can cause severe destruction in winter, do not ignore 15 symptoms
The Coronavirus pandemic is not over yet. In the last few months, new cases had reduced in almost all countries, but in many countries, new cases have started increasing once again. It is being told that a new sub-variant BF.7 of the Omicron variant family is causing this. This new sub-variant has the potential to spread rapidly. This dreaded virus, first found in China, has spread to many countries including America, Britain and India. All health organizations and experts around the world are agreeing that it has the ability to spread rapidly and dodge immunity, due to which it can lead to a huge increase in new cases in the coming days i.e. winter. Along with this, variants like BA.5.1.7 (BA.5.1.7) and BQ.1 (BQ.1) have also been knocked. After the effect of the fourth wave of corona virus was over, the outbreak of corona was almost over. Everything had become normal, but now due to the availability of new variants, once concern has arisen in front of the whole world. A new wave of corona can bring in winter.
According to a report in US News, JT McCrone of Helix, a genetic sequencing company tracking corona variants, says that the sub-variant of Omicron can give rise to a new wave of corona in winter. The reason for this is that due to the arrival of this variant in China, America and Britain, the number of new cases has increased.
expert in dodging immunity
According to a report in ANI, Omicron sub-variant BF.7 has the ability to dodge immunity created by a disease or a vaccine. This means that even if you have been hit by corona before and your immunity has also developed, you can still be hit by it. Similarly, people who have got the corona vaccine are also at risk.
