In South Africa, COVID-19 is gone, or at least according to the data and reporting. When the
coronavirus first emerged last year, health officials feared the pandemic would sweep
across Africa, killing millions. Although it’s still unclear what COVID-19’s ultimate toll will be,
that catastrophic scenario has yet to materialize in Zimbabwe or much of the continent,
and we are seeing this in many other locations where no vaccinations have taken place.
Africa doesn’t have the vaccines and the resources to fight COVID-19 that Ontario has in
the truckloads. Still, somehow without imposing mask mandates, lockdowns, or
vaccinations for everything that doesn’t move, they are making out better than we are.
Here in Ontario, we are not permitted to participate in society unless we comply with every
draconian rule of massive restrictions. Still, this has resulted in us being no further ahead
than South Africa.
Yet our leaders keep talking about that next variant or wave, and in the meantime, South Africans
are much better off and are going about their lives unencumbered. These facts that anyone can download and verify further make the case that we start asking our government some hard
questions, like how we got
this is wrong and who is responsible? Fewer than 6 percent of people in Africa are
vaccinated. For months, the WHO has described Africa as “one of the least affected
regions in the world” in its weekly pandemic reports.
