The worldwide tension has increased due to the Omicron variant of the corona virus. The WHO has said the global threat is “extremely high” from the oomicron form, and could have “serious consequences”. In the midst of this warning, symptoms of the horrors of the Omicron variant are rapidly emerging. In the province of South Africa where the Omicron variant was first detected, the number of patients in hospitals has increased by 330 percent.
According to official figures in Gauteng province of South Africa, this week there have been 580 cases of people suffering from corona being admitted to the hospital. If we look at the figures for two weeks, there has been an increase of about 330 percent. Johannesburg, the capital of South Africa, also comes in Gauteng province. Only 40 percent of the people of this province have had at least one dose of the corona vaccine.
‘Symptoms have been very mild in cases so far’
Last year, 77 cases of the Omicron variant were reported in the region, and many experts around the world fear that Omicron may be the most contagious variant. Not only this, this variant can also beat the vaccine due to its many mutations. Meanwhile, doctors in South Africa say that the sharp increase in cases of infection due to the new Omicron form of the corona virus, most of them have mild symptoms.
Dr. Unben Pillai, a physician in Gauteng province, says that he has seen a sharp increase in new cases of Covid-19 in the last 10 days. Of the new cases in the country, 81 percent of the cases have been reported in Gauteng province. He said that till now the symptoms in the cases have been very mild. The patients included flu-like symptoms, dry cough, fever, night sweats, body aches, he said. He said that most of them have been treated at home.
19 cases of Omicron variant confirmed in Botswana so far
Doctor Unben also said that the condition of those who have been vaccinated among the infected is much better than those who have not. The recent increase in cases of Covid-19 in South Africa has come to the fore among the youth. Doctors emphasize that the symptoms of COVID-19 in young people are often mild. On the other hand, a total of 19 cases of the newly discovered Omicron variant of Covid have been confirmed in Botswana so far. Health Minister Edwin DiColotti said at a briefing on Sunday evening that after four foreigners were declared infected last week, 15 more cases of the Omicron variant were reported on Sunday morning following additional assessment and analysis of other positive Covid samples.
