President Cyril Ramaphosa sought to allay concerns about possible heightened hazards from the Omicron variant by discussing the contents of his regular briefings with Health Minister Joe Phaahla. 

President Cyril Ramaphosa said the health pastor informed me that the rising cases of COVID-19 have not resulted in an alarming increase in hospitalizations. 

While responding to queries about the movement boycotts imposed on South Africa by developed economies as a result of the recently discovered omicron variant, the president, who is on a state visit to Accra, Ghana, informed columnists about the developments. 

By revealing the contents of his regular briefings with Health Minister Joe Phaahla, Ramaphosa sought to allay anxieties about possible heightened hazards from the Omicron variant. 

He added Phaahla informed him that while the variant appears to be more contagious, clinic confirmations provide a different narrative. 

"Our emergency clinic confirmations are not increasing at an alarming rate, meaning that people who are attempting positive are not being admitted to clinics in large numbers, and as a result, I suggested we shouldn't freeze," he told reporters. 

As he met with various state presidents in Nigeria, Ivory Coast, and Ghana on his West Africa trip, Ramaphosa used the opportunity to criticize the ban on southern African travelers. 

"While Omicron spreads, it does not appear to be bringing about a greater number of clinic confirmations. The tests and research must be done. That is something we should be thankful for. It will be seen in all places. We need to figure out how to live with the infection right now "According to Ramaphosa. 

He went on to say that vaccination rates need to rise, and he chastised developed economies for being "avaricious" in their immunization collection.
