Picture Introduction,

The President of South Africa urged everyone to get vaccinated against Kovid.

According to health officials, omicron, a new form of coronavirus, is now dominant in South Africa and is causing a rapid increase in new infections.

According to the latest data regarding total daily infections, about 8.5 thousand new cases of Kovid were registered. This figure is almost double from the 4.3 thousand cases confirmed a day earlier.

A few weeks ago, in mid-November, an average of 200 to 300 recorded infections per day.

The Omicron variant has been attracting the attention of experts because of the number and diversity of genetic mutations. However, there are still many questions about the new version – such as how severe it causes infections and whether it will be able to survive the effects of the vaccines currently in use.
