South African Federation of Trade Unions (SAFTU) General-Secretary Zwelinzima Vavi will test for coronavirus on Monday again after being treated for the virus and discharged from hospital.
In a tweet, Vavi thanked supporters for their solidarity after he tested positive for COVID-19 earlier in March and was admitted to hospital. He says his wife and child do not have any symptoms.
Reports say although an initial test had come back negative, the trade union leader had a second test, which came back positive.
I was discharged from hospital! Resting at home now but still in isolation. Will test on Monday but I remain positive that victory is certain! Thank you all of you for so much love and solidarity! My wife and 7 year old boy has shown no symptoms whatsoever! #LockdownMzansi
