By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Fearing the spread of new COVID-19 variant discovered South Africa, the United States, and several countries in Europe and Asia have barred South Africans from entering.

According to Reuters, a South African doctor who was one of the first to identify the new variant, Omicron as the World Health Organization (WHO) has named it, said the variant produces mild symptoms which can be treated at home.

Dr. Angelique Coetzee, chair of the South African Medical Association, said that on November 18 she noticed that seven COVID-19 patients she treated at her private clinic, had milder symptoms than those infected with the Delta variant.

“We have seen a lot of Delta patients during the third wave. And this doesn’t fit in the clinical picture,” Dr. Coetzee said.

“Most of them are seeing very, very mild symptoms and none of them so far have admitted patients to surgeries. We have been able to treat these patients conservatively at home.”

She added that they have not reported loss of smell and taste as patients with the Delta strain do. She also said that Omicron infected patients don’t show a major drop in oxygen levels.

“The most predominant clinical complaint is severe fatigue for one or two days. With them, the headache and the body aches and pain.”
