Omicron cases increase fivefold in South Africa
South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has said that a fourth wave of COVID-19 was anticipated and a new Omicron form was inevitable.

Two weeks ago, only two percent of the people tested were getting infected.

Ramaphosa said in his weekly newspaper to the nation, ‘The increase in cases of infection is a matter of great concern but we must remember that we anticipated it. The pathologists in our country told us that we would face a fourth wave around this time and it was almost inevitable that new forms of the virus would emerge. He said, ‘As the country moves towards the fourth wave of Kovid-19, we are experiencing a rate of infection growth that we have not seen since the start of the pandemic. The Omicron form, brought to global attention by South African scientists about two weeks ago, is the cause of most new infections.
