Racheal Kolisi tests positive for COVID-19 – “It’s scary”


Racheal Kolisi (wife of SA professional rugby union player, Siya Kolisi) announced that she’s tested positive for COVID-19.

Taking to Instagram, she penned down how she feels and urged people to spread out the word that the virus is real and worse than what she thought.

It’s a scary experience for Siya as she’s isolated and can’t allow her children come close to her.

Below is what Siya revealed:

“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.”

“COVID is not like flu. It’s so much worse and if my posting can encourage someone to take one extra step of precaution that will be great, also if you know of people not taking Covid seriously please have a conversation with them about it. People are dying.”

“It’s clear our numbers in SA are out of control – we’re just short of 1 million cases. Yet some people are more relaxed about it then ever?” she concluded.

These words were accompanied with a selfie of her current look.
