Skeem Saam's Skhumbuzo Mbatha has unfortunately become a victim of the dreaded coronavirus. My people, things are getting real.
Taking to social media, Skhumbuzo revealed that he had tested positive for Covid-19 on 26 June 2021. Skhumbuzo had been sick for almost a week prior and luckily did the right thing by isolating.
“I tested for Covid-19 on Saturday the 26th, got my positive results the following day. Fortunately, I had been isolating ever since I started feeling sick on the 20th of June.”
Having contracted the virus, Skhumbuzo now knows what it feels like and it's not worth catching.
“The discomfort of this condition is beyond measure.”
Skhumbuzo shared his story to create awareness, hoping that peeps will see it and take the virus a little more seriously.
“Covid is real, take care of yourselves.”
Fans took to the comment section of Skhumbuzo to wish him a speedy recovery, thanking him for his transparency. Covid is no joke and people need to start treating it with more care.
“Speedy recovery Sku, this thing is very scary.”
@Mpho Herman asked God for healing:
“We wish you a speedy recovery Mr Mbatha, may God gives you more strength to deal with that situation.”
@Tselane Molapo let Skhu know that he will be fine:
“Skhu don't worry, you will be very fine. There are many people who tested positive like you but now they are fine. Covid is part of our life nowadays so don't panic Skhu, take your time, you will recover very soon. U fole my friend.”
@Madimetja Seema put two and two together:
“That's why you didn't report on duty Saturday on radio... speedy recovery the Immaculate...”
