Matshidiso Moeti, disse: “Covid-19 constantly exploits our divisions. We will only get the better of the virus if we work together for solutions.”

He added that blanket bans “place a heavy burden on lives and livelihoods” while not stemming the spread of the virus.

“The speed and transparency of the South African and Botswana governments in informing the world of the new variant is to be commended,” said Moeti.
