According to the British news agency Reuters, the 69-year-old president had mild symptoms on his body.
In a statement, his office said the president began to feel sick after returning to the State Memorial Service in Cape Town this morning to pay his respects to former deputy president FW de Klerk.
De Clarke served as Deputy President under President Nelson Mandela from 1994 to 1996. He died on November 11. He was the latest leader of South Africa’s white minority government.
The statement said Romaphosa had taken two doses of the vaccine. He is currently in isolation in Cape Town. Incumbent Deputy President David Mabuza will take over all responsibilities for next week.
The World Health Organization (WHO), meanwhile, says omicon is more contagious than the delta strain of coronavirus. The agency says it reduces the effectiveness of the vaccine but does not cause serious symptoms.
Delta was first identified in India earlier this year as being responsible for coronary infections around the world. Last month saw a massive conversion of the Omicron, first identified in South Africa. Many countries around the world have already imposed travel bans on South African countries.
In addition, restrictions are being imposed internally in countries to reduce the speed of transmission.
The World Health Organization (WHO) says that as of December 9, Omicron has been reported in 63 countries. The disease is spreading rapidly in South Africa and Britain.
