Coronavirus: Description video

The discovery of a new and more contagious COVID-19 variant derailed South Africa’s plans to begin immunising its health workers with the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine, which proved less effective against the new strain.

By mid-December, the country entered its second wave of the pandemic, at its peak recording 20,000 new infections a day.

For now, South Africa is using the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which was shown to be more effective and will instead distribute its batch of Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccines to other African countries.


Al Jazeera’s Fahmida Miller reports from a lab in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
