Found this translated message circulating from Chinese media:

According to news reports, today there are three Chinese working in India, After returning home from India via Nepal, the initial tests were negative when they arrived in Chongqing, but the doctor still had doubts, so he gave them a CT scan. They were found to have lesions in their lungs and confirmed to be a triple variant of the Indian virus, proving that this Indian super variant can evade current testing, However, most of the checkpoints are only conducted by ordinary tests. Hong Kong and most other countries do not require immigrants to undergo CT scans and do not have sufficient time and resources to do so.
The infected person does not cough and has no fever.
This strain does not reside in our nasopharyngeal region! Nasal mucosa sieve test often shows COVID19 negative!
So no more prodromal symptoms such as loss of smell or taste, it attacks the lungs directly, shortening the onset time.
Many patients who do not have a fever, But X-rays showed moderate chest pneumonia!
This means that the virus spreads directly to the lungs, causing acute respiratory distress (hypoxia) from viral pneumonia!
This explains why India covid victims are grasping for oxygen as lung become non-functioning .
Death rates are higher and the time to reach critical is shorter.
This outbreak is more deadly than the last one, and caution must be exercised.

I think there is some truth on the Chinese article as this video show very clearly this India Covid is very different from what we see in Wuhan, Italy ,UK and US where the symptom is severe dry cough causing breathing problem and no oxygen supply crisis. Whereas in India, the covid is causing massive lack of oxygen to the body.. Indian Covid victims are breathing heavy but could not take in as lungs are damage.

People do not die from severe cough causing breathing problems.
