Sho Madjozi shared her experience of being tested for Covid-19 and told fans that authorities initially refused to test her because she had no symptoms.
Sho Madjozi said in a thread on Twitter on Monday that it was a battle.
“I tried for three days to get tested after I landed from the UK. They refused to test me everywhere because I showed no symptoms. Finally managed to get a test on Tuesday. My negative result came back five days later” she said.
Sho said her experience led her to believe that the recent spike in cases in SA was the tip of the iceberg.
“Corona maths is tough. We have no idea how many people have this thing. Yes, we have 402 confirmed cases on 23rd of March. But it takes three days to get results so actually we had 402 cases 3 days ago. Not today.
“They are only testing people who are showing symptoms. Symptoms start showing 2-14 days after a person contracts it. Meaning we had 402 cases over a week ago. We have no idea how many people have the virus at the moment. No idea.”
