A Pretoria lady has taken to social media to share an inspiring story. Thabang Latifa Malatji had a heart attack at work and while in ICU was diagnosed with Covid-19. She shared the story to Facebook group, #ImStaying.
Thabang works in the medical field and she explained that 10 of her colleagues had also been diagnosed with the virus at the same time as her. Unfortunately, a few of her colleagues did not win their battle with the virus. Part of her caption read:
"We have so many challenges from PPE to lack of resources and shortage of staff with overcrowding, but we did our best with passion. Thank you all Stayers for prayers, and positivity. Every day I would read and be inspired to wake up and fight for my life and my kids."
Stayers rushed to the comments section with words of positivity for Thabang. Her post has also received over 3 000 reactions on the group.

In other inspiring news, Briefly.co.za recently reported on a pregnant woman who had coronavirus gushing over her "angel" that helped her. Finding out that you've tested positive with the life-threatening coronavirus is scary. It does, however, become a million times scarier when you're nearly 35 weeks pregnant.
This is not something anyone would hope to go through, especially not alone. This is probably why when Palsa found out that she was positive with the deadly virus while 34 weeks pregnant, her world probably came crashing down.
Luckily for Palsa, she met someone who eased the burdens brought along by her positive Covid-19 test result. According to her #ImStaying Facebook post, Palsa was hospitalised after she received her harrowing test results. She also had to spend 14 days isolated from the world, all while pregnant.
