News anchor Cathy Mohlahlana wins battle with Covid-19

News anchor Cathy Mohlahlana has beaten the coronavirus.

The Newzroom Afrika prime-time presenter took to social media to share the good news.

“Guys, ke fodile. Thank you all for the prayers, well wishes and love. I’m truly blessed. Grateful to be back at work today,” she tweeted on Monday, 10 August.

The update comes after she shared over a week ago that she was at home resting and recovering from Covid-19.

“Like so many others in the country, I’ve tested positive for Covid-19. Thankfully only mild symptoms which are congestion and headache. I’m doing really well,” she captioned a picture of herself.

“Please take care of yourselves. I will be doing a lot of reading and watching television for the next 14 days,” she said.

Shortly after giving an update about her health, messages from people wishing her a speedy recovery started pouring in.

Cathy was not the only broadcaster who opened up about battling the virus. SABC’s Chriselda Lewis, who has already recovered and was back at work, also shared she had tested positive for the virus a few weeks ago.

“Late last month, I had tested positive for Covid-19. It has been a painful and scary journey towards recovery. I thank the Almighty for giving me more life, the doctors, my family, friends and colleagues who showed so much love and care,” she said.

Chriselda said although her isolation period had lapsed, she would still be taking some time off.

“While my isolation period has lapsed, I will be away for a few more days to regain strength and provide emotional and logistical support to others nearing the end of their isolation period.”

The journalist, who has been away from social media since testing positive, urged everyone to be safe and take care of themselves.
