Zweli Mkhize said : "He didn't mention AstraZeneca as such. I also believe that we serve one God and all of us as people, whether we are in London or South Africa or anywhere in the world, there would be a difference in the way that God would look at us. “Therefore, I wouldn't expect God would actually want to act on a vaccine in South Africa when the same vaccine is doing well in London, India, Europe and everywhere else. I think we shouldn't mix the two issues. I think it was an expression from the chief justice to assure people that if there was anything that was wrong, they would be protected," External link

Zweli Mkhize explained : "They paid a dedicated focus on the impact of vaccines against the 501Y.V2 variant in the latter part of the year and in early January 2021. The results of these studies became available only on Friday, last week and was publicly released on Sunday. It is as a result of this work, in which the government has directly invested, that it was established that the AstraZeneca vaccine does not prevent mild to moderate disease of the 501Y.V2 variant. This timely finding has ensured that all measures are taken to utilise the most efficacious vaccine in our vaccination strategy," External link
