As we reported earlier, South Africa has identified a new variant of the coronavirus that is driving a second wave of infections.
“We have convened this public briefing today to announce that a variant of the SARS-COV-2 Virus - currently termed 501.V2 Variant - has been identified by our genomics scientists here in South Africa,” the head of the country's Ministry of Health Zweli Mkhize said.
South Africa has recorded the highest number of coronavirus infections in Africa, approaching the 900,000 mark, with over 20,000 related deaths. A resurgence in cases saw the government tighten restrictions on society this week.
