More and more Mzansi celebs are using social media to reveal their Covid-19 statuses. Rhythm City actor Zola Hashatsi is the latest celeb to confirm that he has tested positive for the coronavirus.
Many South African TV shows have halted production due to fear of exposing their crew and cast to the virus.
Briefly.co.za reported that Rhythm City had to stop production when one of their actresses tested positive for the virus.
Zola told his followers on Instagram that he has also tested positive for the virus.
The star took the test a week ago after his colleague, the unnamed actress, tested positive. Unfortunately for him the results came back positive as well.
Zola captioned his post:
"Dear friends, family and colleagues, please note my results for Covid-19 have come back positive. I will be taking necessary steps in keeping well and protecting others. Please go and have a test should you not feel 100%."

Brian, who said he never thought he would be affected by coronavirus, encouraged South Africans to take care of themselves as the coronavirus is "serious".
"Sometime we take things for granted and we think some of the bad things that happen in the world would not affect us until it’s on your doorstep. A few days ago I tested positive for Covid-19 when I thought it would be something that wouldn’t even get close to me."
