“During Election, No Covid-19, After Election, They Bring a New Variant, We're Not Fools”

An angry South African youth insisted that the new omicron Covid-19 Variant That was recently discovered in South Africa is worrisome. He said that the whole thing is already looking suspicious. The young man lamented that all through the local government elections and the massively attended political campaigns, there were no reports about new variants. Furthermore, he disclosed that even though many people didn't observe the laid down rules and regulations for the prevention of Coronavirus during the elections and campaign period, no single Covid-19 Variant was discovered. He lamented that just two weeks after the election are over and now closer to Christmas, they are trying to bring in another variant. The angry youth declared, “South Africans, we must take to the streets. During elections there was no corona, December is coming, corona is back. We are not fools, this abuse of power must be challenged”.

Many South Africans said that they are beginning to wonder about this Coronavirus of a thing. Some people said that before the election, some top health officials said that there would be a 4th wave of Coronavirus pandemic in South Africa. A Twitter user asked how were they able to know that a 4th wave was coming. Another person declared that about two months to the election, some health personnel already made it clear that a new Coronavirus variant will likely come up November ending to the beginning of December. He lamented that this is no longer funny because it seems like Covid-19 is now writing letters to health officials informing them about the dates and time of its visit. Furthermore, they stated that they want to know why the variant did not show up during the local government elections and why now that the election is over and concluded. They said they want to know else, they will take to the street until the government address the issue at stake.

Another Twitter user was vehemently against this incoming lockdown that is allegedly being planned in December, saying that all these variant stuff are nothing but scam. He wrote, “Discussions I had with people before elections, alerting them of a “fourth wave, new variant and a possible lockdown”. All of this is a scam and the sooner people wake up to see, the better it will become for all of us. We cannot be taken for a ride. Enough is enough!”.
