Rami Chuene recently took to social media to share that she and many others were still reeling from the affects of the Covid-19 pandemic. Not only has the global health disaster taken lives, it has also affected livelihoods and the mental health of many. Taking to Twitter, Rami shared:
“Truth be told, Covid-19 took so much away from us. We smile, laugh and live through the pain just so we can go on living but the damn thing broke us. F*ck, Covid-19 broke us.”
Her tweet hit home for many social media users who are still feeling the damage of the virus.
Fellow actress Refilwe Modiselle said:
“True. Mom to just get up and try figure life out as though we have no direction is so painful. Some want to judge circumstances based on the "norm" of life... But are not in the norm... This is something else no one could be prepared for. E bohloko. And you are expected to be OK.”
“You making me cry. This virus has deeply killed us alive. The only difference between us and those six feet under is the breathing we still have even if it might be hard to breathe for some of us.”
“We lost our loved ones, those who survived are left with chronic conditions and some left them disabled. After eight months still don't have sense of smell.”
“Covid-19 ndiyayizonda (I hate it), it took my father on 1 February 2021. I'm broken.”
