The woman credited with the discovery of the Omicron covid variant, told Talk Radio that the world is over-reacting to it. She also said that it causes no more than mild symptoms.
Speaking to Julia Hartley-Brewer, Dr. Angelique Coetzee said:
“Patients I’ve seen had mild symptoms and recovered. None were admitted and no oxygen was needed. The hype makes no sense to at all.”
The media is a disgrace. Health Minister Edward Argar did the rounds this morning, appearing on national radio and television. Not a single presenter asked him to justify his government’s over-reaction to the emergence of Omicron.
No, presenters instead preferred to ask him why his government isn’t going further and moving to Plan B, meaning even more restrictions and also vaccine passports.
I could strangle the bastards.
South African Dr Angelique Coetzee first raised the alarm over the Omicron variant and says the rest of the world is over-reacting.
