Omicron COVID Variant Causes Only Mild Disease Says South African Medical Association

Contrary to what we’re told the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus results in only mild disease, without prominent symptoms, according to Angelique Coetzee, the chairwoman of the South African Medical Association.

Omicron COVID Variant Causes Only Mild Disease Says South African Medical Association

“It presents mild disease with symptoms being sore muscles and tiredness for a day or two not feeling well. So far, we have detected that those infected do not suffer loss of taste or smell. They might have a slight cough. There are no prominent symptoms. Of those infected some are currently being treated at home”, Coetzee told Sputnik.

The official noted that hospitals have not been overburdened by Omicron patients and that the new strain has not been detected in vaccinated persons. At the same time, the situation might be different for unvaccinated individuals.

“We will only know this after two weeks. Yes, it is transmissible, but for now, as medical practitioners, we do not know why so much hype is being driven as we are still looking into it. We will only know after two to three weeks as there are some patients admitted and these are young people aged 40 and younger”, Coetzee added.

The chairwoman also criticised the decision by some countries to ban flights from South Africa as premature, because there is not enough information on how dangerous it is.

Following the reports about the new strain, the United States, the European Union, Canada, Israel, Australia, and other countries have restricted travel from several southern African nations over health concerns.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) on Friday indentified the new South African strain as one of concern, as it is reported to carry a high number of mutations — 32 — which possibly makes it more transmissible and dangerous. The WHO has dubbed it Omicron, the 15th letter of the Greek alphabet. Here is how the WHO Greek alphabet COVID naming system works.

  1. Hi , why nobody never comments here in your pages while you give us excellent informations ?

    Thanks you for all you offer us !

  2. Covid Crusher: Mix one heaped teaspoon of Iodine table salt in a mug of warm clean water, cup a hand and sniff or snort the entire mugful up your nose, spitting out anything which comes down into your mouth. If sore, then you have a virus, so continue morning noon and night, or more often if you want, until the soreness goes away (2-3 minutes) then blow out your nose and flush away, washing your hands afterwards, until when you do my simple cure, you don’t have any soreness at all, when you flush – job done. Also swallow a couple of mouthfuls of salt water and if you have burning in your lungs, salt killing virus and pneumonia there too.

    My simple salt water cure, kills all Coronaviruses and viruses, as soon as you think you have an infection, or while self isolating, before the viruses mutate into the disease in your head and body, for which there is no cure.

    I have been doing this simple cure for over 27 years and I am and others never sick from viruses and there is no reason why any of you should be either – when your only alternative are those vaccines!!


  3. ALL of these ‘variants’ is a massive lie – don’t you buy into their lies and propaganda. It is to put and keep you in fear and to take total power and control over your life. STOP! obeying your TV!!!

  4. As usual with MSM concerning SARS-COV 2 , the fear factor is the story of the day .
    Viruses mutate ,i.e. variants .This is normal and it has always been this was and will probably always be this way .Keep yourself healthy with natural means , exercise ,sunlight or VIT D3 etc.
    If you don’t have co-morbidities the chances of not getting over this disease are minuscule .

    omgosh how could you dare to present such an effective treatment that people can use with what they already have in their homes??!? Don’t you feel guilty for depriving the moguls of their profits?? No? oh well then you are okay lol one would have to be totally insane to be anything other than proud for presenting a treatment that can save countless persons from misery. I salute you Sir!! btw I have been doing this for the last couple of months and I have never felt healthier! Thank you so much!!
