Top ANC heavyweight tests Positive for Covid-19. See who he is

As we hit the fourth wave shortly before the holiday season, more and more well-known individuals will test positive for COVID-19. And it seems as if that process has already begun. The Presidency said that Minister of Home Affairs Aaron Motsoaledi tested positive for the Coronavirus. Tonight, a severe storm with gale-force winds is forecast to batter sections of the Western Cape.

As we hit the fourth wave shortly before the holiday season, more and more well-known individuals will test positive for COVID-19. And it seems as if that process has already begun. The Presidency said that Minister of Home Affairs Aaron Motsoaledi tested positive for the Coronavirus.

Is Aaron Motsoaledi sequestered?

Mondli Gungubele, Minister in the Presidency, disclosed in a statement that Motsoaledi is self-isolating. Additionally, the Presidency said that the 63-year-old is in "excellent health." Is South Africa on the verge of another state of emergency? What does the nation do today, with over 2800 instances recorded in the previous 24 hours AND a new COVID "Omicron" variety prompting the world to shut us out once more?

Originally scheduled on Sunday, President Cyril Ramaphosa and his National Coronavirus Command Council met. However, considering the worldwide outpouring of concern over the problem, that deadline has been extended forward to Saturday.See the source image

This week, Health Minister Joe Phaahla and other medical professionals urged an examination of the size of gatherings. The difficulty is that this has become an extremely tough issue for the administration to address. All of this is due to the ANC's prodigious number of rallies in the run-up to the Local Government Elections.

So what if the NCC proposes tightening limitations or reverting to a previous degree of lockdown?

Ramaphosa would then need the President's Coordinating Council's involvement. Premiers and senior government officials are included in this category. With Gauteng accounting for 2100 of the 2800 new COVID infections, there is a significant probability we will see some type of interprovincial travel prohibition. On Friday, Phaahla said that he couldn't promise that there will be no additional travel bans.See the source image
