Incredible news from South Africa (VIDEO)
December 23, 2021
In the video below, Dr. Suneel Dhand discusses the latest news from South Africa, which suggests that their omicron COVID-19 wave is collapsing. A recent study from South Africa says that those infected with the omicron variant had an 80 percent lower risk of being hospitalized compared to the delta variant. This was mentioned one minute into the embedded video, which lasts about six minutes.
In some regions of South Africa, the wave of cases is half what it was just three weeks ago in a country where between 35 and 45 percent of adults have taken the COVID-19 treatment that some health officials call vaccinations.
Dr. Dhand also points out that even a mild case of COVID-19 could bring poor outcomes for vulnerable populations who have poor immune systems. This is a good time to have a COVID-19 rapid antigen test available if you spend time with people who have compromised health.
