COVID-19 News: New SARS-CoV-2 Variants In China BF.7.14 And BA.5.2.48 Found To Driving Pneumonia And ARDs But Fake Virologist Claiming They Are Mild!
: New worrisome data is indicating that the new BF.7 variant in China spotting the spike mutation C1243F and a variety of new BA.5.2 sub-lineages are driving pneumonia and ARDS in many infected patients not just those in the vulnerable groups. (The aged, the young, the obese, the immunocompromised, those with existing comorbidities such as diabetes high blood pressure, kidney and heart issues and certain individuals with certain genetic mutations). Furthermore it has also been seen that many who were asymptomatic or mild symptomatic, seemed to develop lung injuries and lesions that manifested as glass opacities in x-rays and MRI scans….what many Chinese are now referring to as White Lungs.
Thailand Medical News had earlier warned about these new Chinese variants and about the white lung issues in our earlier COVID-19 News
The new BF.7 variant in China has now been designated as BF.7.14
(Data not updated yet)
One of the various new BA.5.2 sub-lineages that are unique in China has been designated as BA.5.2.48.
(Data not uploaded yet)
Other new and unique Chinese BA.5.2 sub-lineages are also being investigated.
New data emerging from China is indicating the Chinese variants are driving pneumonia and ARDS in many patients and unlike the earlier Omicron variants and even the various XBB sub-lineages, are exhibiting tropism towards the lungs alveolar tissues and cells.
Chinese health experts are reporting that up to 40 percent of all those aged above 50 contracting the new SARS-CoV-2 variants and sub-lineages in circulation are contracting pneumonia. Also, between 10 to 20 percent of lung x-rays or MRI scans of infected individuals across various age groups are showing the white lung manifestations.
Chinese doctors, physicians and even reporters are also going online to warn people about the serios pneumonia conditions caused by the circulating variants.
Some so-called fake virologists from a particular country famous for whores, scams and corruption (kindly check their credentials as to whether they have gone through the relevant training to be called virologist!) for a garbage educational establishment famous for lying that they were found the cures for various diseases or developed superior COVID-19 vaccines while always soliciting for donations, in the last 48 hours have been disseminating lots of misinformation in a garbage media, written by a garbage journalist who had no knowledge about health or medica matters, claiming that the Chinese variants are not worrisome and that the XBB.1.5 is more serious and other Western variants are more worrisome. In reality, any properly qualified medical doctor would know that all SARS-CoV-2 variants or sub-lineages are worrisome irrespective of their pathogenicity or virulence as we are discovering that the SARS-COv-2 can cause all kinds of serious long term issues!
Ironically, the XBB.1.5 variant although is more transmissible but less immune evasive than the original XBB variant, will not cause much disease severity and mortality except those in the vulnerable groups who will also remain susceptible to any SARS-CoV-2 variants.
Thailand Medical News had also warned that the Chinese variants are more worrisome than the XBB.1.5 variant as they seem to be driving more hospitalizations and deaths.
It should be noted that some of these fake virologists who are making media statements have made so many fake statements during the early part of the pandemic and even made claims that the Sinovac vaccines were effective when so many new peer reviewed studies have now shown this to be not true.
What is worse is that some of these garbage ‘virologists; are now claiming that young children should not be masking as they are protected after earlier exposures to the SARS-CoV-2 virus despite not providing any proper scientific evidence!
In fact, many real researchers and experts are now worried that the exposure to the SARS-CoV-2 virus could have impaired the robust innate immune systems of children, making them more susceptible to other opportunistic pathogens including the RSV, Adenovirus and even Flu virus, Strep A bacteria etc.
