Fitness fundi Letshego Zulu has warned South Africans against letting their guard down as the daily infection rate of Covid-19 positive cases increases.

The widow of racing car driver Gugu Zulu took to Instagram this week where she posted a video of herself getting tested after she was exposed to the virus.

“Truth is, many of us are exhausted and we drop our guard, especially around our loved ones and closest friends.

“Those gatherings are the real ’super-spreader’ events,” she said.

She said that while more people die of other diseases, viruses, suicide or murder, “one more person dying from Covid-19 is one too many”.

“Friends, don't drop your guard, no matter how Covid-19 exhausted you are. One death is one too many. SA is far from herd immunity.

“Don't feel guilty for complying when others aren’t.

“We go to weddings and other events and 99% people aren’t wearing masks there because we think we're in a ’safe space’.

“I too have been guilty of that. Think twice. No, think thrice because it might catch you by surprise. Tomorrow is not guaranteed to anyone of us.”

Letshego also detailed a health scare she had three months ago, which made her think she may have contracted the virus.

“I had potential third party exposure. My mind played tricks on me. I felt a scratchy throat when there was none.

“I was out of breath after every flight of stairs. I was tracking my SP02 and it kept dropping below 90. I was an emotional wreck for the week that I quarantined at home.

“Because I treasure my loved ones, I tested to ease my mind because, yeyi, I was going mental. Needless to say, results came out negative but it was a lesson to continue being vigilant.

“Don’t feel guilty for complying when others aren’t. We go to weddings and other events and 99% people aren’t wearing masks there because we think we’re in a “safe space”. I too have been guilty of that… think twice.

“No, think thrice because it might catch you by surprise. Tomorrow is NOT guaranteed to any one of us”, she said.
