University of KwaZulu-Natal’s scientist, Professor Mosa Moshabela. has dismissed rumours that Covid-19 jabs are no longer effective against the virus.

The university’s deputy vice chancellor of research and innovation said if people continued adhering to the health precautions in place there would not be any need for a hard lockdown, but it would probably be advisable for government to move the country to a stricter lockdown level.

He was speaking to The Witness on Sunday amid the public’s concerns about the latest Covid-19 variant, Omicron.
