South African scientists are downplaying the danger of a new Covid-19 variant identified in the country towards the end of 2020. Covid-19 501.V2 has been found in all of the country’s nine provinces and has led
to several countries banning flights from South Africa. The variant has
been associated with a higher viral load, leading some scientists to
believe it is more transmissible and possibly a major contributing
factor in the surge in infections around the globe.
However the government & leading scientists are blaming the current
surge in infections to a lack of adherence to coronavirus containment
measures and “superspreader” events during the festive period.
