While world governments rush to close borders and implement measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19, veteran actress Florence Masebe has addressed those who struggle with asthma, urging them not to panic. Florence struggles with asthma and was hospitalised in an intensive care unit in 2018 after an attack.
