New Delhi: The Coronavirus that emerged from Wuhan, China, nearly two years ago, created panic all over the world. Since then the world has been struggling to recover from the corona epidemic. People heaved a sigh of relief when corona cases worldwide have decreased over the past few months, but now the new variant of the coronavirus, Omicron, found in South Africa, has started a new period of panic. Cases of this new corona variant have been reported in many countries including India, UK, Canada, Netherlands.
However, you will be surprised to know about the province in South Africa where 90 per cent of corona patients are infected with the same Omicron variant. This is the province of Gauteng where there is a fear of Omicron everywhere. Most corona patients are found to be infected with the same variant. There are lockdown-like situations in the city, universities and colleges have been closed, exams have been postponed. Everyone is being tested. In view of this situation in South Africa, most countries in the world have imposed strict rules or banned flights from there.
Just 22 per cent of young people between the ages of 18 and 34 have taken doses of the corona vaccine inside South Africa. Mokuba Jitha, a student who has received the vaccine, said he is motivating many colleagues to get vaccinated. I'm trying to convince them that if you want to avoid coronavirus, you have to get vaccinated, Jitha said. We're watching on TV that every day people are dying due to this virus. We have to understand. After two years of the continuous corona, the world is now on the verge of being hit by a new variant of the corona. That's why many countries have banned travel since the Omicron was detected, while many countries have closed their doors to visitors from South Africa.
