Rachel Kolisi tests positive for Covid-19

Johannesburg – South Africa’s first lady of rugby, Rachel Kolisi announced that she tested positive for Covid-19.

Rachel made the announcement via an Instagram post, which read, “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.”
