Because BA.2.75 was already present in India when the BF.7 sub-variant [current cause of panic] was detected [here], it did not cause a surge. That is because the former has a high survival rate and is fitter for survival in India.”
ean for the public? It’s clear that despite the many sub-variants of Omicron prevailing at different periods of the year, there has been no major uptick in terms of hospitalisation or a requirement for oxygen as was the case during the Delta variant.
In other words, some of the Omicron sub-variants, for the most part, appear to have run their course in India and been replaced by a few others. Why the government decided to issue an advisory for BF.7 alone is not clear except for a surge being witnessed in China where levels of both natural immunity and vaccination rates are low – unlike India.
As Omicron sub-variants wax and wane, there has been no change so far in disease dynamics – hospitalisation and deaths – in India.

An MP has used Parliamentary privilege to make a bombshell allegation that a senior member of the British Heart Foundation has covered up a report which shows the mRNA Covid vaccine increases inflammation of the heart arteries.
Here We Go! Bill Gates, Johns Hopkins, & the WHO Just Simulated Another Pandemic
Almost 3 years to the day, the same people behind Event 201 just completed a desktop simulation for a new Enterovirus originating near Brazil. The virus has a higher fatality rate than COVID-19 and disproportionately affects children.
The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, in partnership with WHO and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, conducted Catastrophic Contagion, a pandemic tabletop exercise at the Grand Challenges Annual Meeting in Brussels, Belgium, on October 23, 2022.
The extraordinary group of participants consisted of 10 current and former Health Ministers and senior public health officials from Senegal, Rwanda, Nigeria, Angola, Liberia, Singapore, India, Germany, as well as Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
The exercise simulated a series of WHO emergency health advisory board meetings addressing a fictional pandemic set in the near future. Participants grappled with how to respond to an epidemic located in one part of the world that then spread rapidly, becoming a pandemic with a higher fatality rate than COVID-19 and disproportionately affecting children and young people.
Participants were challenged to make urgent policy decisions with limited information in the face of uncertainty. Each problem and choice had serious health, economic, and social ramifications.
