Rand gains against US dollar

The rand is now more than 10 cents below the R16 mark against the US dollar. The rand weakened to R16.32 to the greenback on Friday following confirmation of the new Omicron COVID-19 variant in the country.

Analysts say both the rand and the JSE seem to have been buoyed by the fact that President Cyril Ramaphosa did not move South Africa into more stringent lockdown restrictions.
With Omicron cases being discovered in more countries internationally, the new variant is becoming a global concern.
