‘No need to panic about Omicron variant, symptoms mild’

A medical practitioner, Angelique Coetzee, has urged the public not to panic about the Omicron variant of COVID-19 as patients so far had shown no severe symptoms or the need for hospital treatment.

Coetzee, who is also board chairperson of the South African Medical Association (SAMA) and in a private practice in Pretoria, said although the situation might change, the symptoms had not been serious so far.

“This is not only my own account. I consulted with other doctors in Atteridgeville, Midrand and so on, and they’re seeing exactly what I’m seeing. The symptoms are mild, and that’s the most important message,” she said.
