Sho Madjozi returned from the UK and thought it would be a good idea to get tested for the coronavirus.

To her surprise, this was not as simple as she would have hoped. For days, Sho couldn't find anyone who was willing to test her.

Briefly.co.za gathered that Sho's experience has her now believing that the current cases reported in SA are just the tip of the iceberg.

"Corona maths is tough. We have no idea how many people have this thing. Yes, we have 402 confirmed cases on the 23rd of March. But it takes three days to get results so actually we had 402 cases 3 days ago. Not today.
"They are only testing people who are showing symptoms. Symptoms start showing 2-14 days after a person contracts it. Meaning we had 402 cases over a week ago. We have no idea how many people have the virus at the moment. No idea."

Sho also welcomed the 21-day lockdown that the president announced, which will start on midnight of 26 March.

She said the only solution was to “stay at home” and encouraged her fans to follow the government's instructions to self-isolate.
