Recent reports coming out of China suggest that it is not time to ignore or take this virus for granted. In other words, should a new variant of the corona virus be discovered and its spread intensify, China has once again imposed lockdown and travel restrictions.
Recently, omicron subvariants bf.7 and ba.5.1.7 have been discovered in China. These variants are said to be very lethal and spread very quickly. This new variant found in China is more deadly than the corona variants found previously. This variety is said to have a very high spreading ability.
Studies suggest that the newly discovered omicron bf.7 and ba.5.1.7 sub-variants are a sub-lineage or sub-variant of the covid omicron BA.5.2.1 variant.
The bf.7 and ba.5.1.7 variants have been found in several locations in China in October, according to reports from local Chinese media.
