Actress Pearl Thusi is pretty scared of the coronavirus and rightfully so. The media personality said that the current stats have her so shook that she can’t even leave the house.
Taking to social media, Thusi posted:
“Covid has me shook. Ordering things online. Haven’t left my house in ages. I wear a mask and the face shield. Only leave for emergencies. Stay safe guys.”
Social media users had mixed reactions to her post. Some are just as scared as her while others are convinced that the illness is not real.
Twitter user StakesUnique said:
“Covid 19 seem to be a scam to destroy other countries especially SA, now it's quiet with Europeans.”
“Sorry sis Pearl but were you not at a wedding last week...”
“Thank you, it's really bad out there Pearl, stay at home as well.”
“At least you can say that and encourage the country to do what you do. A lot of us, we wish we could do the same. But we still can't afford not to go out and fend for ourselves. I know that is not your fault or doing. It's just that when I read it, my heart...”
“You can stay as long as you want it in your house, I'm sure that will never change anything, for the time you were given to live in this world. Covid or no Covid, when your time is finished, you're finished.”
“Just thank the Lord for the fact that you can still afford to stay at home and order some stuff, some can’t even have R10 for a meal or to feed their families. Ngoba kubi langaphandle.”
