Corona has worsened the condition of China. It is a matter of concern that now the virus is spreading rapidly in America and Japan as well. in these countries Covid19 Omicron’s sub-variant Bf.7 is the reason for the increase in cases. The infectivity of this variant is very high, due to which the virus is spreading rapidly.

The number of people infected with Kovid in China is very high in the elderly and people with comorbidity (suffering from another serious illness). Deaths are also increasing due to them. When the third wave of Kovid came in India, during that time also the elderly people were becoming more victims of the virus. At present, cases of Omicron’s sub-variant bf.7 have also come in India, although this variant is present here for several months, but doctors say that there may be a risk of mutation in it. In such a situation, the elderly and those with comorbidities need to take special precautions.

This is because even if these high-risk people get corona, then due to the effect of the vaccine, its effect will be mild. In such a situation, these people can avoid the serious effects of Kovid. Cases of hospitalization and death remain under control due to vaccination. That’s why it is advised that people who have taken two doses should also get a booster dose.

There is no harm to health by getting vaccinated

There is no such study or medical evidence in which it has been told that the vaccine has caused damage to the body.

Dr. Anshuman says that vaccines are absolutely safe. The damage to people’s body is not caused by the vaccine but by the corona virus. Most of the people whose health is deteriorating are those who had covid.
