A woman on Twitter has shared a story of how she and her brother contracted the Covid-19 virus and had to do everything possible to make sure they recover. The woman, identified as Veronica, shared how worried she as the virus hit close to home.
Veronica, who identifies herself as @Migizikwe_ on Twitter and Instagram, said she and her brother fortunately recovered from the virus. Veronica and her brother were living in the same house and they had to self-isolate in different rooms.
She said her brother isolated in his office and used a different bathroom and she was also in a different part of the house. They frequently washed their hands and wiped things down. They wore masks and maintained social distancing.

Veronica revealed how she was worried because her brother has a newborn baby and a four-year old daughter. She added that her brother works as an emergency medicine doctor for Navajo Nation, an American Indian territory occupying parts of Arizona, Utah and New Mexico.
The region has one of the highest Covid-19 rates, she said. Veronica slammed people who go out in public and protest the wearing of masks while also going to bars and parties.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported that a courier truck ferrying Covid-19 specimens was hijacked in Port Elizabeth on Monday.
With samples now missing, the National Health Laboratory Services has issued a warning to both the robbers and the general public not to touch the specimens.
The NHLS has cautioned that the samples may be highly infectious and manager Tabita Makula urged anyone who comes across the sample to report it immediately.
The pathology services institute is still attempting to determine how many of the stolen samples where missing and how many people would need to be retested.
