The extremely contagious BF.7 Omicron subvariant exhibits a wide range of symptoms, including hearing loss, smell problems, and chest discomfort. The BF.7 sub-variant, which was first discovered in a portion of Mongolia in China, is now spreading and posing concerns in the US, UK, Australia, Belgium, and other countries.
According to reports, the current increase of Covid-19 instances in China is due to the BF.7 Omicron subvariant. Before the impending Christmas season, authorities have encouraged prudence and acceptable behaviour.
Omicron BF.7 was previously the subject of a warning from the World Health Organization (WHO), which warned that it was likely to replace the current widespread form, claims Dr. Sanjay Dhall, Director of Internal Medicine at Max Hospital, Shalimar Bagh.
Dhall went on to assert that the BF.7 variety had more frequent infections. “The ability of Omicron and its variations to sidestep the human immune system is well established. Fortunately, Omicron and its variations seldom result in serious symptoms, although older people and those who have other ailments like heart disease, liver disease, or renal disease may do so “Added he.
Here are the symptoms of the BF that are currently understood, while further research is still needed.
Subvariant of 7 Omicron.
What are the most common Omicron BF.7 symptoms?
The following is the current list of BF.7 subvariant symptoms:
- a chronic cough
- diminished hearing
- chest discomfort
- trembling or shaking
- and changed sense of smell
Why is it concerning?
The number of Covid-19 occurrences increases with each additional variation and subvariant, putting the weak at risk.
As a result, the possibility of Covid spreading grows each time a new variety appears, the doctor explained. And that’s particularly true given that festival season is almost approaching and everyone will start violating social conventions and travelling without masks once more.
He said that in order to prevent this virus from once again sweeping our nation with the Covid illness, “now is the best moment for us to again emphasise all the actions that include wearing masks, social distance, not travelling to crowded sites, avoiding needless excursions to markets, etc.”
