'Fewer severe Covid-19 cases' in Omicron epicentre hospitalsAccording to the report, the positive cases of Covid-19 have mostly been 'incidental findings' in patients, meaning they were admitted to the hospital for reasons other than Covid-19. This variant is just a scare tactic from Government to get people to do what they want, wether you vaccinated or not...fokofANC In other words the patient went to hospital because they were sick from other illnesses. Then the hospital tested them to get numbers. They the tested positive. 4 died and the stats were counted under covid. Thanks for the clarity

Africa is a Big enough continent it could be a super power all on it's Own .. if You all start combining what you have - 54 Countries STRONG CyrilRamaphosa The plandemic is all about money not lives. Then why pushing a vaccinate campaign He will later regret and apologize to Western countries
Ramaphosa concerned about gatherings, warns against spread of COVID-19As COVID-19 infections continue to surge, President Cyril Ramaphosa is concerned about large and indoor gatherings. I would have cutback on gathering sizes (in/outdoors) on 2 November CyrilRamaphosa . But that’s just me🤷🏽♂️ He should have been worried during election. Numbers are on the rise suddenly? December is the culprit because people can’t drink responsibly and the government uses that.. & what do you suggest ? because it's like you hinting at him to put 🇿🇦 back to level 5 & CyrilRamaphosa was busy with house parties in West Africa with his Brothers, no one cares anymore, whoever dies dies.The USA lost a lot of people who had taken 2 jabs + the booster jab
'Our lives are just as important': Ramaphosa criticises Western nations' handling of Covid-19President Cyril Ramaphosa has used his four-nation visit to West Africa to criticise Western nations for 'ignoring science' and looking out for their “own selfish interests” in fighting the Covid-19 pandemic. Tell Them Mr President! Completely Agree! I'm quite sure he dreams of these vaccines every night But he was also dancing in Ghana without a mask, when he comes back he is telling us about covid 19 protocols and even adding more restrictions.These leaders should lead by example and we will follow.
