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.

However, with this he said that there is a need to remain alert. Vaccination has been done on a large scale in India and due to this most of the people have immunity to fight the infection.

able to avoid immune
Li Tongzheng, a medical expert at Beijing’s Xiaotangshan Hospital, has told the Global Times that this variant also has a high ability to escape from the immune system. When all these variants of corona attack, the body’s immune system is not able to stop it from spreading in the body. The medical expert told that since the infection period of BF.7 is very short, that is, it infects any person in a very short time and its infection rate is also fast, so the cases of corona in China are suddenly increasing rapidly. Huh.

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.
