What started as a scratchy throat was eventually confirmed as Covid-19 infection. Minister of Social Development, Lindiwe Zulu, has tested positive for Covid -19 and she says the virus found her vaccinated. A statement released by the Department of Social Development confirmed that the minister received a positive test result for Covid-19 on Monday morning and immediately started self-isolation at home.
Zulu says it all started with a scratchy throat and she really put much thought into its but when it persisted, she decided to get tested for Covid-19. She took the test on Sunday and received the results on Monday morning. “I am feeling well and I can attribute this to the fact that the virus found me fully vaccinated,” Zulu said.
The minister’s positive result comes as the country has just been hit with the Omicron variant, which the World Health Organisation has declared a “variant of concern”. The Minister has urged all South Africans to get jabbed and continue to follow Covid-19 protocols.
“As President [Cyril] Ramaphosa emphasized last night, vaccination is the most powerful tool we have and it is not too late to get vaccinated before the fourth wave hits us hard,” Zulu emphasized. She alluded that the fact that she has been vaccinated fully means that she’s safer and hopes she’ll only experience mild symptoms.
