South Africa has registered more than 16,000 new coronavirus infections in the last 24 hours, and the government is stepping up its vaccination campaign.
According to WHO, Omicron's portability research is underway, urging hospitals to increase bed capacity in the face of rising COVID. The Omicron variant of COVID is ruining SA's safari tourism industry.
To date, more than 26 million coronavirus vaccines have been administered nationwide. An additional 25 people have died from the virus, bringing the total number of deaths to date to 89,944.
Meanwhile, Health Minister Joe Fara said that vaccinated people can still be infected with COVID 19, but full vaccination will prevent them from becoming seriously ill.
The government wanted 70% of the population to be vaccinated by January, but four weeks before the end, only 37% of the eligible population had been vaccinated at full doses. Vaccination, even if not a panacea, is the most reliable weapon for serious illness, Fara said.
On the other hand, in the northwest, the number of vaccinated people, especially those who are vaccinated with the Omicron mutant, is increasing. The World Health Organization guarantees that scientists control the study of Omicron variants.
