Masasa Mbangeni Sends A Strong Message After A Nurse Family Member Tests Positive For Covid-19. The reality of Covid-19 strikes more when we are directly affected. Over a month ago media mogul and businessman Tbo Touch, revealed that he lost a friend to a Coronavirus related illness.
Another celebrity who has been affected by the pandemic is Masasa Mbangeni. The award winning actress revealed that one of her family members who is a nurse at Livingstone Hospital in Port Elizabeth has tested positive for Covi-19.
Many health workers world wide have contracted the virus, with some losing their lives even. This is because doctors and nurses get in direct contact with the sick. With our health system, some health workers find themselves with minimal protective equipment, and arealso overwhelmed with taking care of many patients.
As we are in lockdown level 3, it doesn’t meant the virus is at bay, it’s still spreading and people are still dying. Masasa has taken it upon herself to caution fellow South Africans out there. “Please I beseech everyone , pretend like it’s still level 5 to the best of your ability . Our nurses & doctors simply can’t cope,” she advised.
