Omicron’s subvariant XBB and one of the three dominant COVID-19 strains in China has been confirmed by genome sequencing in Pakistan, the Pakistan National Institute of Health reported.

On the other hand, Aga Khan University researchers verified that they had found and reported the XBB sub-variant of the Omicron as well. But they added that they had not yet seen the other two sub-variants, including BF.7.

Experts say that in addition to the XXB variation, the highly contagious BF.7 is available in the county. The BF.7 is extraordinarily infectious and would present across the country because there is no travel restriction to stop the spread.

Both the new COVID-19 variants are dangerous and claimed that the COVID-19 re-infection evading properties of the BF.7 variant made it so contagious that just one individual with the virus might infect 20 more persons because the virus spreads more easily indoors and in crowded settings.

According to experts, there are only 11 patients in critical condition across the country, and they predict more numbers in the coming days.

Officials from the NIH advise safety measurement for the citizens and reaffirm that a significant COVID-19 wave does not currently threaten the country.
