“I refused to take leave this year and worked throughout the lockdown with anxiety and all but still worked.

“I am now on sick leave with chest pains that the doctor cannot explain until tests are ran. Rest rest,” commented @kgala_letso.

“Everyone else: I'm sick with the flu, the doctor said I should rest at home plus I don't want to infect others at work

“This is referred to as poor working conditions, not integrity,” commented @Rahz_al_Ghul.
