South Africa – Some South Africans are concerned that despite being completely vaccinated against COVID 19, the country’s president, Cyril Ramaphosa, might still test positive for the virus. After testing positive for COVID-19, the president, who was last seen in public on Sunday at a national memorial to F.W. De Klerk, has postponed having a COVID-19 vaccination booster dose. People’s health professionals advise the public to use the president’s case as an encouragement to get vaccinated at vaccination facilities in South Africa.
“The president’s positive test demonstrates that it (COVID-19) can affect anyone, from high-ranking officials to low-ranking citizens. So the most essential thing for people to do is to always mask up, sanitize, keep a safe distance, and, most importantly, get vaccinated. “ According to Michelle Strohmenger, a nurse, South Africa’s regulatory body allowed the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine to be used as a booster shot last week, paving the way for third doses to be given to adults to combat the current omicron variant outbreak.
According to some people, the president’s case is sufficient proof that the coronavirus knows no bounds. “It (COVID-19) is genuine if it can infect people in positions of power. The president wields enormous power and is in charge of all of us. ” Vaccine recipient Sibongiseni Khanyile: “The fact that this virus is capable of infecting the president demonstrates how terrible it is.” Let’s make a concerted effort to be vaccinated. “ Vaccine recipient William Legula.
According to Johns Hopkins University, South Africa’s 7-day rolling average of daily new cases has increased over the past two weeks, rising from 7.6 new cases per 100,000 people on Nov. 28 to 32.7 new cases per 100,000 people on Dec. 12. According to nationwide tests, omicron has been found in more than 70% of new cases since mid-November. On average, the additional omicron instances have resulted in milder disease and fewer hospitalizations.
