If you think that the Corona epidemic is over then be careful, in many countries the infection seems to be gaining momentum once again. The situation is getting worse due to Corona in China. According to media reports, many cities of China are going through the worst phase of Corona so far. Hospitals in the Chinese city of Beijing are seeing a huge rush of infected people, where the death toll due to Kovid is also increasing.

Although there are allegations that China has not reported any death due to infection for two weeks. According to reports, the situation in China is similar to that seen during the wave caused by the Delta variant in India.

Restrictions had to be removed in China

Health experts working on the corona epidemic globally say that in view of the decreasing cases of corona, China had almost abolished all the restrictions, after which suddenly there is a spurt in the cases of infection. . Things have become very serious. According to a Reuters report, Beijing’s crematoriums are getting crowded for the last rites. Kovid’s death is being given priority for cremation.

Health experts are considering unnecessary changes in policies as the main reason for the deteriorating condition of Corona in China. China last week halted the testing of asymptomatic cases and restrictions related to it, due to which the infection has spread on a large scale. Apart from this, China had also increased the use of rapid antigen kit by discontinuing RTPCR test, due to which concrete information of infection is not available.

Officials say that such negligence increased the risk of infection, due to which such bad conditions are being seen.

The effect of these variants of Omicron is being seen

Experts are considering Omicron’s subvariant BF.7 as a major risk factor for the worsening situation due to corona in the Chinese city of Beijing these days. Cases are being identified due to this variant in most of the infected. Officials say that this variant of Omicron is causing rapid infection, its infectivity rate is being seen higher than other variants. This variant is also infecting those people whose vaccination has been completed.

BF.7 variant in the making Reason for hidden spread

Regarding the deteriorating condition of Corona in China, health experts say, Omicron BF.7 is being considered more dangerous in studies. It is seen to cause severe disease in people whose immune system is weak. Due to this variant, the cases of hidden spread have also been seen more. Hidden spread means that most of the patients do not show symptoms, due to which they are not noticed, but such people can infect other people. In these people whose immunity is weak, serious diseases have been seen increasing.

More than one million may die in China

Experts have alerted about the increasing risk of corona. According to the analysis of the report released by the US-based Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation, more than one million people may die of COVID-19 in China in 2023. An alert has been issued regarding the peak of Corona in April 2023, during which the death of more than 3.22 lakh people has been feared. Researchers say that the way Corona’s zero covid policy has been suddenly removed in China has created great difficulties.

Researchers say that taking lessons from China, other countries of the world also need to be alert. The risk of corona has not reduced yet, all people should not be negligent in taking precautions.
