Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that 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 especially 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."
In other news, Covid-19 is rapidly spreading as the country is well into its second wave of the virus. Unfortunately, Rachel Kolisi happens to be one of many South Africans who have tested positive for the coronavirus.
