Chest pain, deafness, shivering among top symptoms that could be Omicron BF.7
There are a wide variety of symptoms associated with the highly infectious BF.7 Omicron subvariant, from chest pain and smell issues to hearing impairments. The BF.7 sub-variant, which originated in a region of Mongolia in China, is now spreading to the US, UK, Australia, Belgium, and other places and causing new problems.
According to sources, the BF.7 Omicron subvariant is to blame for the present rise of Covid-19 cases in China. Authorities have advised caution and reasonable behaviour before the upcoming holiday season.
According to Dr. Sanjay Dhall, Director of Internal Medicine at Max Hospital, Shalimar Bagh, Omicron BF.7 was previously the subject of a warning from the World Health Organization (WHO), which warned that it was expected to displace the existing prevalent form.
Dhall continued by claiming that the BF.7 variant had higher infection rates. “Omicron and its variants are well known for their propensity to evade the human immune system. Thankfully, Omicron and its variants seldom cause major symptoms, but older individuals and those with other illnesses including heart disease, liver disease, or renal disease may experience severe symptoms “he added.
While there is still more to learn, here is what is currently known about the symptoms of the BF.7 Omicron subvariant.
What are the most common Omicron BF.7 symptoms?
The list of BF.7 subvariant symptoms so far is as follows:
- persistent coughing;
- hearing impairment;
- chest pain;
- trembling or shaking;
- altered sense of smell
Why is it concerning?
With each new variation and subvariant, the number of Covid-19 instances rises, placing the weak at danger.
Therefore, the likelihood of Covid spreading increases each time a new variant arises, the physician said. And that’s especially true now that festival season is just around the corner and everyone will once more start defying societal norms and travelling sans masks.
He stated that “now is the perfect time for us to again reinforce all the steps that include wearing masks, social distance, not travelling to crowded locations, avoiding unnecessary excursions to markets, etc.” in order to stop this virus from once again sweeping our country with the Covid sickness.
