The Ministerial Advisory Committee on Covid-19, says the change in the country’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic has been influenced by the high levels of immunity seen in the population.

Professor Jeremy Nel says a large proportion of the country’s adult population now has some degree of immunity, largely due to natural infection.

He says the country’s vaccination drive has also, to some extent, contributed to the heightened levels of immunity.

Nel says this has contributed to the decision to not continue with the practice of contact tracing.
