South Africa’s government will meet in the coming week to decide whether more stringent virus restrictions are needed following a surge in cases after the onset of the new omicron variant, Health Minister Joe Phaahla said.

“We will look at for instance, among other things, the rapid rise and also what pressure our health facilities are under,” he told reporters on Friday. Serious curbs can be avoided if people wear masks, avoid large gatherings and more get vaccinated, he said.
