[Epoch Times December 03, 2021](Epoch Times reporter Li Yan comprehensive report) Dr. Angelique Coetzee, President of the South African Medical Association, said that so far, the symptoms caused by the Omicron variant are very mild and can be Restore health at home.

“Most of the cases that we submit to primary care doctors are extremely mild, mild to moderate. Therefore, this means that they do not need to be hospitalized for the time being.” Koz, who is also a private doctor, told CNN on November 30, however, This does not mean that the new strain of Omicron will not cause serious diseases. But if the patients are mostly very light and do not need to be hospitalized, “this is the jackpot.”

The South African National Institute of Infectious Diseases (NICD) took the lead in reporting the discovery of a new variant of COVID-19 (a disease caused by the Chinese Communist virus) Omicron on November 24.

According to Reuters, Kotz was one of the first doctors to discover a variant of the Chinese Communist virus Omicron. She noticed that seven patients had “very mild” symptoms, which were different from those caused by the Delta variant that currently dominates the global epidemic.

In an interview with CNN, Koz encouraged doctors to test patients with signs of “discomfort.” The symptoms of these patients include fatigue that lasts for one to two days; itchy throat; body aches.

“If we can deliver this message to the world, it means that we are likely to reduce serious cases and reduce the number of people who see a doctor too late.” She continued, “No system can withstand this situation, as in South Africa, and in the United States. So. No one can afford it.”

Koz also confirmed that some of the Omicron variant patients she had contacted had been vaccinated. However, she said they were not “very sick”.

However, doctors’ understanding of this new variant strain is still in the “early stage”.

The vaccine’s effect on the new variant of Omicron is unknown

As of this Tuesday (November 30), Brazil, Japan, and South Korea have all reported their first Omicron variant cases. As of December 1, Omicron has been in 22 countries.

In response to concerns about vaccine breakthrough cases, BioNTech founder Ugur Sahin told The Wall Street Journal that the Omicron variant is unlikely to cause serious illness in vaccinated patients.

In the interview, he also urged people to “speed up the third booster dose.”

On the other hand, Stéphane Bancel, CEO of Moderna, told the Financial Times that it would take two weeks to collect data on the effects of current vaccines on new variants, and several It took months to re-develop vaccines against new variants.

When talking about the effectiveness of vaccines on Omicron, Bansell told the Financial Times: “I think this will be a substantial decline. It’s just that I don’t know how much, because we need to wait for the data. But all talk to me. Scientists who have been… are saying’this (result) will not be good’.”
