All might not be well. Many people thought coronavirus cases had reduced in the world. What is worrying is that virologists have unfortunately detected a new variant in South Africa that is given a scientific lineage number B.1.1.529 that has a huge count of mutations.

According to the information from France 24, the variant has been observed spreading majorly among young people.

It has led to an increase in the number of infections in recent days in South Africa. At the same time, it has been detected in other nations like Botswana and Hong Kong among travellers.

It's something that has made many countries in the world impose bans on flights from six African countries including, Nambia, Lesotho, Botswana, Eswatini and Zimbabwe.

It should be remembered that SA has the highest pandemic numbers in Africa with nearly 2.95 Million infections and total fatalities of 89,657 since the disease was reported in December 2019 in China.
