It’s from Singapore. The news is this!
Everyone is advised to wear a mask because the new COVID-Omicron XBB variant of the coronavirus is different, deadly and not easy to detect properly.
Symptoms of the new virus COVID-Omicron XBB are as follows:- 1. No cough. 2. No fever. There will just be a lot :- 3. Joint pain. 4. Headache. 5. Neck pain. 6. Upper back pain. 7. Pneumonia. 8. Generally no appetite.
Of course, COVID-Omicron XBB is 5 times more virulent and has a higher death rate than the Delta variant. The condition takes a shorter time to reach extreme severity, sometimes without obvious symptoms. Let's be more careful!
This type of virus does not reside in the nasopharyngeal area and directly affects the lungs, namely the “window”, in a relatively short time. Several patients diagnosed with Covid Omicron XBB were finally classified as having no fever, no pain, but X-ray results showed mild chest pneumonia.
Nasal swab tests frequently provide negative results for COVID-Omicron XBB, and cases of nasopharyngeal tests providing false negative results are increasing.
This means that the virus can spread in the community and directly infect the lungs, causing viral pneumonia which can cause acute respiratory stress.
This explains why Covid-Omicron XBB is very contagious, very virulent and deadly. Please note, avoid crowded places, keep a distance of 1.5 m even in open spaces, wear a two-layer mask, use a suitable mask, and wash your hands frequently if everyone is asymptomatic (not coughing or sneezing).
Covid Omicron *"WAVE"* is more deadly than the first wave of Covid-19.
So we have to be very careful and take all kinds of coronavirus precautions. Also maintain vigilant communication with your friends and family.
