He recently revealed this after a five-fold increase in daily infection rates over the last week, and the world has been reacting.
According to him, omicron is currently dominating new infections in most provinces and nearly a quarter of all Covid samples have now come back positive compared to two weeks ago.
He added that authorities have been preparing hospitals to admit more patients and trying to secure medications for the treatment of coronavirus, while scientists are investigating the impact of the new variant.
His words, “As the country heads into a fourth wave of Covid-19 infections, we are experiencing a rate of infections that we have not seen since the pandemic started.”
“As we enter the fourth wave, and as the country gears up for the festive season, the urgent priority is for more people to get vaccinated. Scientific evidence shows that vaccination is the most effective means of preventing the spread of new infections and that vaccines reduce severe illness, hospitalization, and death.”
