Omicron: The Omicron BF.7 subvariant is rapidly spreading throughout the world. So far, India has reported four cases. Cough, fever, and sore throat are among the symptoms of Omicron BF.7. Expert advice on determining whether your cough is caused by Covid.

The new Omicron BF.7 subvariant of Covid has been blamed for the massive increase in hospitalisations in China, and it is feared that the virus will kill millions in the coming months. The same subvariant has infected four people in India so far, but health officials and experts say there is no reason to panic just yet. Omicron BF.7 infects more quickly and is difficult to detect in RT-PCR tests.


People have become more cautious and vulnerable to the symptoms of the new Omicron BF.7 virus since its arrival. Because the new sub-variant is highly transmissible and has shown signs of overriding the previous variants’ built-up immunity, it has become one of the most dangerous forms of Covid yet. This variant’s symptoms are similar to those of an earlier Covid infection, including fever, cough, sore throat, weakness, nausea, and diarrhoea.

The vast majority of Covid patients develop a dry cough as opposed to a wet cough. It starts out mildly but worsens over the course of several weeks. As a result, it causes other issues such as chest tightness and breathing difficulties. If the person has a cough that does not go away after a few days, it is a sign of a larger disease, which could be Covid. They must immediately restrict their exposure to public spaces and undergo testing.

A common cough infection does not result in extreme fatigue and weakness. A Covid infection can immediately weaken the body’s defences and exhaust it, making even daily activities difficult. In addition, a Covid cough makes it difficult to sleep soundly at night, leaving the body tired and unrested.

A Covid cough is frequently accompanied by other symptoms such as a persistent sore throat, a runny nose, coughing fits, a mild to moderate fever, and shortness of breath.

Exposure to places where the virus is more prevalent can help determine why a person developed a persistent cough. If the person ate something out of season that could have caused a cough or inhaled fumes, the cough could be caused by those activities.
