President Cyril Ramaphosa is expected to address the nation today. Hard Lockdown expected


Following the NCCC meeting, which has spurred rumours of a hard lockdown, President Cyril Ramaphosa is set to address the country today.



Health Minister Joe Phaahla stated that the discovery of the novel B.1.1.529 covid strain is progressing faster than expected, following a massive day of South Africans flocking to malls for Black Friday sales.


More patients infected with this new variety Omicron have been recorded, and the number is expanding rapidly since people are no longer following covid-19 regulations. People congregated in large numbers at the mall, with little social boundary between them, and some were not even wearing musk.



Tonight, President Cyril Ramaphosa will be obliged to declare a state of emergency in order to preserve the lives of our relatives and friends. Even though the decision may be difficult, South Africa cannot afford another lockdown from an economic standpoint. Our country is presently facing financial challenges as a result of the 2020 hard lockdown's economic staleness.


Provincial travel is quite likely because this new variety has not yet been recognized in many provinces, and the only way to prevent it from spreading to other provinces is to cease traveling.


People believe Cyril Ramaphosa should leave them since they were also enjoying elections and no one stood in their way; however, now that the polls are over and they are collected in shopping malls, they are causing a disturbance.



People in Gauteng are being encouraged to be more cautious since this new variation affects the area most frequently. Scientists have even confirmed that this novel Omicron version is more effective than covid-19 vaccinations. As predicted, there is a strong likelihood that individuals will take another new vaccination. The present one is said to be ineffective against this new variety, and individuals may be forced to take the new one, even though it is unclear how long it will take to reach that new vaccination.


Despite the fact that the Omicron is more potent than the present vaccine, individuals are still urged to be vaccinated since the odds of survival are higher when you're immunized.


Do you believe that people should continue to be vaccinated despite the fact that there is a strong likelihood that they will receive another new vaccine?


Do you think it's a good idea for the president to put us on Lockdown Level 5? Your ideas will be much welcomed.
