V2 variant is more transmissible than the United Kingdom variant — as suggested by the British Health Secretary," Zwelini Mkhize said in a statement published late Thursday.
Announcing restrictions on travel from South Africa Wednesday, Britain's Matt Hancock had said that the variant there was "highly nappa, because it is yet more transmissible, and it appears to have mutated further" than the similar strain in Britain. The British minister's words "have created a perception that the variant in SA has been a major factor in the second wave in UK," Mkhize said.
Citing "the widely shared view of the scientific community," Mkhize also argued that "the risks of travel bans may outweigh the benefits". South Africa is the country hit hardest by coronavirus on the continent, with close to one million infections so far and 26, people dead. Around 14, positive cases were detected on each of the past two days, compared with between 8, and 10, earlier this week.
