Covid-19 instances increase in India:-
States have enhanced their ways of testing nationally and requested people to follow the new guidelines  as active cases reached to 3,424 of COVID in December 25 in India. BQ.1.1 is currently the most common version strain. Dr. Rupp claims that the original omicron version is no longer present. "Sub-variants of Omicron, such as BQ.1.1, BQ.1, BA.5, BF.7, and XBB, are currently in circulation. Three cases of the Omicron BF.7 strain, responsible for the current Covid infection epidemic in China, have been identified so far in India. Earlier in October, Gujarat experienced its first case of the highly contagious strain with heightened transmissibility.   Covid-19 instances increase in India Covid-19 instances increase in India-Covid-19 instances increase in India In current scenario, India has 3 cases in which 2 are in Gujarat 1 in Odisha. The mutated variation has not caused many concerns, but has lesser period of incubation and spreads faster. According to reports, 60% of the population of China will contract it within the next three months. Given the present degree of international travel, Internal medicine specialist, Dr. Ravindra Gupta of CK Birla Hospital in Gurugram believes that Covid may spread worldwide. Coronavirus has undergone a new mutation and is now known as Covid BF.7, an Omicron variety. This strain has a strong transmission capacity and has been confirmed to infect China. It has a brief incubation period and is highly easy to spread to other persons.  It is said to spread quickly among people. Furthermore, it has been predicted that during the following three months, 60% of the population in China will contract this type of disease. The disease can spread globally by air travel because people travel all over the world, which would be a dreadful scenario, according to Dr. Gupta. Virus Omicron BF.5.2.1.7, often known as BF.7, is to blame for the COvid-19 outbreak in China. It is a mutant variation of the Omicron and currently possesses one of the highest transmissibilities of any Covid variant. According to studies, this mutant has a RO value of roughly 10-18.6, which means that every infected person can spread the disease to 10-18.6 persons nearby. Additionally, this virus infects people more quickly, within hours, which makes RT-PCR tests challenging to identify it.  Those who are immunocompromised or have weakened elderly, children, pregnant people, and individuals with compromised immune systems with several co-morbidities are at higher risk of getting this condition (cancer, uncontrolled diabetes, heart or kidney problems). In the future, the number of instances alone shouldn't be used to gauge the wave of COVID because most of them will be minor.   Covid-19 instances increase in India Covid-19 instances increase in India-Covid-19 instances increase in India-Covid-19 instances increase in India The yardstick should now reflect the number of moderate to severe cases, including those  requiring hospitalization or oxygen. Therefore, public health initiatives must focus on infections that are severe new mutations causes mild infections. India paid the price for the delta wave, which caused us to lose a lot of people. Those who survived had good Covid immunity, and our excellent vaccination program is still in place. As a result, the population of India as a whole is relatively immune, and those who get BF.7 in the future should only experience a moderate infection. While we are on the lookout, we should continue to conduct study of genomes and understand the variants but it still should be okay, according to Dr. Gilada.
