Health Minister, Joe Phaahla, says no lockdown measures will be imposed in the wake of the emergence of another subvariant of Covid-19.
The new Omnicron variant is described as very contagious, but not very dangerous, as South Africans have built up sufficient immunity since the start of the pandemic.
The variant was detected in the country after it was confirmed in at least 28 other countries earlier.
Deputy Health Minister Sibongiseni Dhlomo elaborates.
