The most common symptom you noticed in the new variant was extreme fatigue, it also causes muscle pain, but the discomfort only lasts for about two days based on what you’ve observed. There have been 24 patients who have presented these symptoms of which half were not vaccinated. Although the consequences for them have not been very serious, Dr. Coetzee is concerned about the impact it will have on the older adult population.

“What we have to worry about now is that when unvaccinated older people become infected with the new variant, and if they are not vaccinated, we will see a lot of people with a serious illness,” he said.

The new variant was first identified in Botswana, then cases were discovered in Hong Kong and South Africa. So far the presence of the mutation has already been confirmed in other places including Belgium, the Netherlands and Israel. Several of these countries are already taking preventive measures to stop the contagion before it becomes massive.

Since the news broke, a sense of panic has been generated around the world. Angelique Coetzee asks for reassurance, saying that until now it is not necessary to be alarmed, “when observing how mild the symptoms we are seeing are, there is currently no reason to panic, since we do not see seriously ill patients.”
