In the Video, the Thermometer shows different readings on the cheek of the boy who tested positive for Covid in China

The thermometer reads the temperature change when brought near the right cheek and forehead

New Delhi:

China is currently seeing a spike in COVID-19 infections with many believed to have contracted the Omicron BF.7 sub-variant. Amid growing concerns about virus transmission, a video from China has come to light showing a young boy infected with COVID-19, having two different temperature readings on his cheeks.

In the clip shared by news, a person is taking a boy’s temperature with a non-contact thermometer. When the device is pointed at the boy’s left cheek, it will read the temperature change when bringing the thermometer closer to the right cheek and forehead.

According to Newsflare, the video was filmed in Liaoning province, China on December 20. Body temperature was measured by the boy’s father. The thermometer showed a reading of 38.1 degrees Celsius on one side of the boy’s cheek and 36.1 degrees Celsius on the other. However, the temperature returned to normal the next day when the fever subsided.

The father then consulted doctors and specialists and learned that the abnormal temperature result was due to an endocrine disorder caused by the high fever caused by the corona virus infection.

The new Omicron sub-variant, in addition to China, has been detected in several countries including the US, UK, Belgium, Germany, Denmark and France. Four cases have also been reported in India. Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya urged people to follow Covid-appropriate behavior and stated that “we are ready to handle any situation”.

The highly transmissible variant and has a shorter incubation period. It is more likely to cause reinfection and can even infect people who have been vaccinated. Its symptoms are similar to an upper respiratory infection and include a runny nose, cough, sore throat, and fever. Some people infected with this variant also experience vomiting and diarrhea. While the variant may spread more quickly, it is not likely to lead to serious complications.
