With South Africa now entering the fourth wave of the coronavirus, many have moved to credit vaccination for their resistance to infection. Daily coronavirus cases are climbing up in a worrying manner, with hospital admissions also on the rise, many are more concerned about the new variant that has hit the country and seemingly the world.

Minister Lindiwe is the latest casualty to get the covid-19 infection, while she may be scared, she has told the media that she feels okay and that she is glad the deadly virus found her fully vaccinated.

According to a statement by the Department of Social Development on Monday afternoon, the minister received a positive test result for Covid-19 this morning and immediately started self-isolation at home. 

“It all started with a scratchy throat and I didn’t suspect anything, but when it persisted, I took the Covid-19 test yesterday and received the results this morning. I am feeling well and I can attribute this to the fact that the virus found me fully vaccinated,” Zulu said.

The minister’s positive result comes in the wake of the detection of the new omicron Covid variant, which the World Health Organisation has declared a “variant of concern”.
