South Africa Remains Under Level 1, But Compulsory Vaccination is Being Discussed

Date: 28/11/21



Ever since the discovery of the new covid-19 variant many people have been waiting for the president to address the nation. He finally decided to do so on Sunday the 28th of November. They were very difference speculations of what the president might decide to do, with some people saying a hard Lockdown is coming but he surprised everyone by not going to towards their direction.


The president decided to emphasise on how citizens should be getting vaccinated in order to defeated the Omicron variant. The president stated that the country is trying to find a way to make Vaccines mandatory for certain activities and entrance to certain spaces. He said this is an open discussion the country need to be involved in. The country remains in level 1 while these discussions are being had so that a sound decision is made. This means the country has more weeks to enjoy their freedoms before a harsh decision is taken. The national state of disaster has been extended. This is to make sure that the country stays under lockdown and a better solution is found


I feel like this is the best decision for the country at the current moment especially since the virus is not known. More studying needs to go towards finding out the new variant before tough decision are made. This goes to show that the National Coronavirus Command Council has evolved from their old ways of thinking..of it was before, the country would have long been under level 3 of the lockdown. The only problem now will be getting people to comply and go get vaccinated.

What is your take on thei decision by the president? Do you think it's the best one?
