Corona, which caused havoc in the whole world including China, has returned once again. Once again the situation in China seems to be out of control. In India too, the government has said that genome sequencing is necessary to identify the new variant of Kovid. The Health Secretary has also instructed all the states that all states should pay attention to the genome sequencing of the corona sample. According to the latest data released by the Ministry of Health, there has been an increase in the number of patients today as compared to yesterday. At the same time, corona infection has been confirmed in 41 passengers who have come from abroad.
The corona report of two more passengers who returned from Dubai and Cambodia at Chennai airport has come positive. So far four travelers from abroad have been infected with Corona in Tamil Nadu.

A total of 41 passengers from abroad have been corona infected so far
According to a report, 498 international flights have been screened since December 24. During this, a total of 41 passengers have been found corona positive so far. Now all these samples have been sent for genome sequencing.
Corona cases increased in India
According to the latest data released by the Ministry of Health, 188 new cases of corona have been reported in India in the last 24 hours, which is 31 patients more than yesterday. While the number of active patients has increased to 3,468.

A case has also been found in Rewari. Altogether there are 23 active cases of corona across the state.
BF.7 variant is responsible for Corona cases
Significantly, cases of Omicron’s sub-variant BF.7 are currently increasing rapidly in many cities of China. Most of its cases are coming up in Beijing. The high transmissibility of BF.7 in China may also be attributed to the low level of immunity in the Chinese population from previous infection and possibly to vaccination. Cases of this sub-variant have already been detected in several other countries, including the US, UK and European countries such as Belgium, Germany, France and Denmark.
How dangerous is Omicron’s sub-variant BF.7
The Omicron variant of the corona virus and its many sub-variants had created havoc worldwide and now the sub-variant of Omicron BF.7 (BF.7) is rapidly engulfing people in China. Experts say that the infection rate of BF.7 is much higher than other variants of Omicron. After getting infected with BF.7, the time to show symptoms ie incubation period is less. It can also easily infect people who have taken the vaccine. Apart from this, the immunity generated after infection with the old variant can also be easily broken. Experts say that a patient infected with BF.7 can infect 10 to 18 people.
R factor too high
Li Tongzheng told that in Delta variant where R factor is around 5 to 6, while in Omicron BF.7 the R factor is more than 10. R factor means how many more people a person can infect. Where this number is 5 to 6 in delta variant. Whereas in Omicron’s BF.7 this number is 10 to 18. PLC/GT
