The latest variant of Covid-19 that has been identified is known as Omicron. The Variant was discovered by South African Virologists. According to the Chairwoman of South African Medical Association, those infected with Omicron variant have been having 'sore muscles and tiredness for a day or two', without loss of taste or smell.
A good point to note is Omicron is not a 'South African variant', it's a variant that was spotted and reported by brilliant South African scientists so fast the world has a chance to get on top of it. Could have originated anywhere else.
The four people who had it Botswana were international diplomats who only arrived in Botswana on 6th November and whose country of origin is conveniently being kept secret.
Here is a summary of what's happening. The countries that have registered cases of the Omicron Variant include; South Africa, Botswana, Israel, Belgium, Hong Kong, United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and Czech Republic.
South Africa has some of the best virology facilities in the world. Graeme Codrington said this months ago when a previous variant was identified by South African virologists. A note to journalists who peddle myths on South African variants. These words still hold true.
