A Member of Emfuleni’s Mayoral Committee responsible for Sports, Recreation, Arts, Culture, Parks and Cemeteries Penny Sengoatsi has tested positive for Covid 19.
Sengoatsi told the media that she was tested on Wednesday together with all her family members after her young sister tested positive.
“I got tested last week Wednesday with my whole family after discovering that my youngest sister who is a soldier tested positive. Health care workers from Empilisweni were kind enough to come and test us. The rest of the family received their result on Sunday via sms as they all tested negative,” said Sengoatsi.
“I received a call from the Facility Manager who gave me the results and a prescription of medication,” she continued.
Sengoatsi will be in self-isolation for the next coming 14 days.
She however said she feels healthy and strong and without any symptoms adding that her fears are that a lot of people might be roaming the streets infected but without knowing like her.
“My kids including my seven month old are with my younger brother and his wife currently because I can’t take a chance with my kids. I’m in self-isolation at home and will be testing again after 14 days,” she added.
The community leader also expressed her gratitude over the helpful tips she was getting from family, friends, colleagues and comrades.
“I encourage people to get tested so that they know as early as possible and have the chance to fight back” said Sengoatsi.
EML mayor, Gift Moerane wished Sengoatsi and all other Covid 19 patients a speedy recovery.
