Omicron BF.7 | There is widespread concern due to the increasing number of corona cases in many countries around the world. The Omicron sub-variant BF.7 is believed to be the main reason behind the increase in Covid cases in neighboring China. However, three cases of the BF.7 variant have been detected in India so far, official sources said on Wednesday. This variant was identified for the first time in India. Last October, the Gujarat Biotechnology Research Center identified the BF.7 variant. An official said that so far two cases have been reported in Gujarat and one in Odisha.
According to information from the authorities, the Omicron variant is responsible for the increase in cases in several cities in China, mostly in Beijing, with the BF.7 variant being cited as the reason. The variant spreads rapidly, infecting even those who have been vaccinated. Such cases have been reported in several European countries including the US, UK, Belgium, Germany, France and Denmark. Meanwhile, the Center today reviewed the situation of Kovid abroad. In a review meeting chaired by Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya, experts said that at present there is no increase in Kovid cases, but continuous monitoring is needed to track the variants that are developing.
The Center appealed to people to wear masks in crowded areas. It says that we are ready to face any situation and there is no need to panic. The Center has clarified that at present there is no restriction on travel from abroad. It was told that at present the cases of Kovid in the country are under control and the active cases are less than five thousand. It has expressed concern that the cases of Kovid are increasing rapidly in the countries of China, Japan, South Korea, Brazil and America. The Center has told that the total number of Kovid cases in America has crossed 100 million.
