On Wednesday, residents in South Africa and Brazil volunteered to begin the testing of a COVID-19 vaccination trial developed by the University of Oxford in Britain.
The trials are starting in South Africa because it is being said that the country was responsible for nearly one-third of the continent’s positive cases.
Although the continent of Africa as a whole was one of the last places to get hit by the pandemic, health officials are saying that numbers are now beginning to spike.
Every day we wake up to the news that there’s significantly more cases of coronavirus around the world than the night before. This news can obviously be triggering and make you feel a bit paranoid.
“Is it just allergies, or is it the ‘rona?” is a question a lot of us are asking ourselves these days.
The most common symptoms of the virus are fever, dry cough and shortness of breath.
