South African music artist has revealed how she was not tested for the Dreaded Covid-19 virus when she returned back from UK into the country.
Sho said that she tried for three days to get tested even after she returned back from her trip to UK last week yet they refused to test her because she showed no sign of the symptoms while at the airport.
But finally she has managed to get tested and the result showed she was negative to the virus.
“I tried for 3 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 cane back 5 days later.” she said
She went further to help enlighten the public on how to get tested, she said that since coronavirus used to take a long to to show symptoms on the infected people that the number of people already going about in the country could be more than the original number revealed on the news.
“And you can spread it before it shows that you have it. We really just have to, 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.”
“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 3 days to get results so actually we had 402 cases 3 days ago.
