Is Africa free from the COVID-19 virus?

Edited by- Vrinda Arora

 After two years of wearing masks everywhere since the corona outbreak, Africans appear to be regaining their freedom. Namibia announced on March 17th that people in the country will no longer be forced to wear masks.

 South Africa has become one of the few countries to ease mask regulations, as stated by Cyril Ramaphosa, President of the Republic of South Africa, on Tuesday, March 22nd, 2022, at 8 p.m. (SAST). Unlike Namibians, South Africans are still required to wear masks when using public transportation and in public areas. 

 However, there is discord as to whether these regulatory reforms are the best option for South Africans. Many citizens are questioning the president's decision, given that it was made just days after a South African scientist announced the discovery of a new COVID-19 variant, B. 1.1 529.
