Omicron variant detected in South Africa and Western countries already imposed ban on South Africa

lockdown fears are misplaced. UK should have been in lockdown months ago. Omicron is definitely in the UK and was prior to SA discovery. They just don't want the press image.

All fights out of South Africa should be halted instead of still being allowed to fly to some countries (more countries are individually banning the flights). Hospitals and healthcare workers need transmission to be as slow as possible, I maintain that South Africa is not the main source of new strain detected.

On the other side Scientists seems confused about the effectiveness of Covid vaccine for this evolving pandemic . Omicron is more transmissible and target the immune system which makes it prone to life threat.

If we talk about SA cricket series then two venues are serious concern i.e Pretoria and Johannesburg.Most of omicron cases has been detected at both places only.Neitherland cricket team has already called off the tour.India's tour is just 20 days later.

So it seems quite obvious that it may get postponed. As a cricket fan i wanted this tour as SA is different venue packed with more challenges nd opportunities.Hard pitch to play nd difficult series to grip.Though players health should be our paramount.
