       Amid international concerns over the new Covid version of Omicron, which is believed to be more contagious than previous strains, a South African doctor who flagged the new exception revealed that the patients he was treating had unknown symptoms.



However, the symptoms were mild and her patients recovered fully without being hospitalized. Angelique Coetzee, chairwoman of the South African Medical Association, told AFP she had seen about 30 patients in the last 10 days diagnosed with Covid-19 but had no symptoms.

Omicron patients reported extreme fatigue, aching muscles, itchy throat and a dry cough, a doctor told AFP. Only a few had a slightly higher temperature.

Coetzee informed health officials that the clinical picture did not fit Delta, which is a popular name in South Africa. By then, scientists have already come up with something out of the ordinary.

We are not saying that there will be no serious illnesses to come. But in the meantime, even patients we have seen who are not vaccinated have mild symptoms. "I'm sure ... a lot of people in Europe are already infected," Coetzee said.

The patients who treated Coetzee were mostly men under the age of 40 and less than half of them were vaccinated.

These exceptions have caused a great deal of embarrassment to South Africa and countries have begun to divide South Africa by enacting a travel ban. South Africa's top health federation has called this 'knee-jerk'.

Angelique Coetzee, who is also the chairperson of the South African Medical Association, said South Africa should be commended and not insulted by the vigilance of scientists. "My suspicion is that because our scientists are very cautious and do a lot of follow-up, perhaps those European countries are missing you because of the symptoms," Coetzee told Newzroom Africa television.
