The coronavirus pandemic is becoming a problem that does not seem to have an end in sight. Each time countries think they just turned a corner, something comes up. If it is not a new strain or variant it is a problem with vaccine.
South Africa celebrated the arrival of AstraZeneca vaccines in February only to discover that it was not effective against the variant detected in the country. The country had to suspend the roll out of the vaccines.
The minister of Health Doctor Zweli Mkhize has just made a devastating announcement regarding Johnson and Johnson vaccine tonight. The minister said the country will voluntarily halt the roll out of the vaccines.
This is a blow especially when phase two of vaccination is about to begin. If the country halts the roll out of the vaccines, this will send fear down the spines of already nervous South Africans.
