The new form of Corona was first detected in South Africa.

After getting the Omicron variant, all the countries of the world have started imposing various restrictions on South Africa. In the first phase, many European countries have suspended air flights to South African countries. Meanwhile, the statement of South Africa has come to the fore. The country's Health Minister Joe Fahla has said that the way South Africa is being treated is wrong. We are being punished for finding new variants through advanced genome sequencing.

Warned the world by quickly discovering the variant

A statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of South Africa said that we have done the work of warning the world by quickly discovering the new variant of Corona. This variant is even more dangerous than the Delta. The World Health Organization has placed it in a worrying category. Our good scientific techniques should be praised, but the world is treating us step-motherly. The Ministry of External Affairs said that for the prevention of corona, we are also making as much effort as any other country. We have world class resources.

Sanctions will hurt the economy

During the first and second wave of Corona, almost all countries completely closed their borders. Even many restrictions were imposed on import-export. This has hit the world economy. There is a severe shortage of production and raw materials. Countries have not yet emerged from this, meanwhile South Africa is once again under threat of sanctions.
