Covid-Omicron XBB is very contagious, highly virulent and lethal (WHO)

Regarding the XBB variant, the World Health Organization has advised the general public to wear a mask because the new COVID-Omicron XBB coronavirus variant is different, deadly, and not easy to detect correctly.

The symptoms of the new COVID-Omicron XBB virus are as follows:

There is no cough.

There is no fever.
There will only be a limited number of these other symptoms:

  • Joint pain.
  • Headache.
  • Pain in the neck.
  • Upper back pain.
  • Pneumonia.
  • Generally there is no appetite.

COVID-Omicron XBB is 5 times more virulent than the Delta variant and has a higher mortality rate than it.
The condition takes less time to reach extreme severity and sometimes there are no obvious symptoms.

This strain of the virus is not found in the nasopharyngeal region and directly affects the lungs for a relatively short period.

Several patients diagnosed with Covid-Omicron XBB were classified as fever-free and pain-free, but x-rays showed mild chest pneumonia.

Nasal swab tests are typically negative for Covid-Omicron XBB, and cases of false negatives in nasopharyngeal tests are increasing.

This means that the virus can spread in the community and directly infect the lungs, causing viral pneumonia, which in turn causes acute respiratory distress.

This explains why Covid-Omicron XBB has become very contagious, highly virulent and lethal.
Caution, avoid crowded places, maintain a distance of 1.5 m even in open spaces, wear a double-layer mask, wear an appropriate mask, wash hands frequently, even if everyone is asymptomatic (without coughing or sneezing).
This wave of Covid-Omicron XBB is deadlier than the first wave of Covid-19. So we have to be very careful and take several enhanced precautions against coronavirus.
