According to eNCAnews’ official Facebook page, The Department of Health has recently released a statement that the fatal variant that’s been killing people in India has been found within South Africa.
Four individuals who’re South Africans tested positive for the variant. Not just that, but 11 more have tested positive for the strain that was initially discovered in the United Kingdom.
For now, the four that have the strain that was dominant in India have just affected two provinces— Gaunteng and KZN (two in each province).
This isn’t the first time that we’re hearing of this strain that has been ruthless in India. Last week one person tested positive for COVID-19 and now it’s four more and these guys have been around people, so it’s possible that there are more carriers of this varient.
Of the 11 people who tested positive for the strain that was initially found in the United Kingdom, eight were found in the Western Cape. Of those from the Western Cape, two have a history of traveling from Bahrain.
From the 11, one person is from KZN and two are from Gauteng.
