The wife of SA rugby captain Siya Kolisi is the latest victim of the horrible Coronavirus. The young media personality headed to Instagram to share with fans how difficult being a mom with the virus has been.
"I never had a fever, no sore throat, no coughing.I actually spent the day in the pool and assumed I had a sinus infection. I realized I couldn’t smell anything so went straight into isolation until I received my positive result.
"It’s been so rough and scary at times specially when you have small kids who don’t understand why they can’t touch you. My heart breaks for those in hospital having to fight this alone, not knowing if they’ll see their loved ones again.
"Equally, my heart breaks for the healthcare workers working tirelessly and understaffed while others are not taking the safety precautions seriously at all. COVID is not like flu. It’s so much worse and if my posting can encourage someone to take one extra step of precaution that will be great, also if you know of people not taking Covid seriously please have a conversation with them about it. People are dying."
She ends the lengthy post by questioning people who are still living recklessly. Meanwhile, her followers had this to say.
"Sending you so much love, strength, healing and speedy recovery vibes your way"
"Get well soon sis."
