NIH Rejects Reports Of New Covid-19 Variant


On Tuesday, the National Institute of Health (NIH) rebutted claims that new Covid-19 variants had been discovered in Pakistan.

The NIH representative added, “No instances of a new variant of Covid-19 have been recorded in Pakistan,” adding that “arrangements have been finalised to counteract the new variant.”

An official from the National Command and Control Centre (NCOC) has said that although new variants have appeared in the past, they have always been contained effectively. The ability to confront and manage any variant is within our grasp.

According to reports, the coronavirus strain circulating in China is a variant of the extremely contagious Omicron form, namely BF.7 or BA.

Yesterday, NDMA Chairman Lt. Gen. Inam Haider Malik, in charge of a review conference on the virus situation, ordered the NIH to publish instructions for schools, public gatherings, and neighbourhoods.

Even though the number of verified positive cases of novel coronavirus has skyrocketed to 1,575,833, the government of Pakistan has claimed that no deaths have occurred in the previous 24 hours. There were 30,636 deaths throughout the country.

A minimum of 15 individuals throughout the nation have tested positive for Covid in the last 24 hours, according to the most recent numbers released by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
