    Many South Africans ill in surge have mild symptoms

    JOHANNESBURG (AP) – South Africa’s rapid increase in COVID-19 cases attributed to the new Omicron variant is resulting in mostly mild symptoms, doctors say.

    “We’ve seen a sharp increase in cases for the past 10 days. So far they have mostly been very mild cases, with patients having flu-like symptoms: dry coughs, fever, night sweats, a lot of body pains,” said Dr Unben Pillay, a general practitioner in Gauteng province where 81 per cent of the new cases have been reported.
