“It presents mild disease with symptoms being sore muscles and tiredness for a day or two not feeling well. So far, we have detected that those infected do not suffer the loss of taste or smell. They might have a slight cough. There are no prominent symptoms. Of those infected, some are currently being treated at home,” said Dr. Coetzee to Sputnik.
“Yes, it is transmissible, but for now, as medical practitioners, we do not know why so much hype is being driven as we are still looking into it. We will only know after two to three weeks as there are some patients admitted, and these are young people aged 40 and younger,” she added.
Dr. Coetzee talked to Telegraph, and she said that two dozen of her patients, positive to the new mutation, were healthy men who only felt tired.
She added that he disagrees with the countries that ban flight from Africa; it is ‘premature because there is not enough information on how dangerous it is,’ per Sputnik.
The officials say the hospitals aren’t swamped and overwhelmed with this new variant.
The WHO’s representative in Russia, Melita Vujnovic, said that people don’t have to panic because it isn’t that bad.
