Europe then Flights to and from Maputo banned, Five new cases of infection have been registered in Mozambique, with zero entry and zero deaths from Kovid-19. The situation was similar in other South African countries. In contrast, most European countries faced Dramatic wave of new infections.
South African scientists have been able to detect and regulate A New variant of SARS-CoV-2. At the same time, they made their findings public. Instead of applause, the country punished. Neighboring countries were punished along with South Africa. Instead of promising to work with Africans, European governments turned a blind eye Closed in on their own affairs.
Borders are not closed, people are closed. Economies, societies and avenues for progress are closed. The punishment we now inflict will only aggravate the horrendous poverty that is plaguing the citizens of these countries because of the isolation imposed by the Pandemic.
Science was once again taken hostage by politics. Again, because fear is obscured. Once again, selfishness prevailed. The lack of solidarity already existed (naturally acknowledged). Shocking inequality in the distribution of vaccines. When Europe discusses the fourth and fifth doses, most Africans do not benefit from a single dose. African countries such as Botswana, which paid for the vaccines, were surprised to find that these vaccines had been diverted to richer countries.
The European continent, which claims to be the cradle of science, has forgotten the most basic scientific principles. Without any evidence of the geographical origin of this variant and no evidence of its actual gravity, European governments imposed restrictions Immediately affects the movement of people. Governments did the easiest and most ineffective: they set up walls to create the false illusion of protection. It is predictable that new variants will appear inside and outside the walls erected by Europe. But there is nothing inside or outside. Viruses transform regardless of geography. There can be two emotions of justice. But not two epidemics.
African countries were once again discriminated against. It is easy to imagine the economic and social consequences of these recent measures. But South Africa is far away. It is no longer just a lack of solidarity. It will work against science and against humanity.
