Zwelinzima Vavi admitted to hospital on Sunday with ‘heavy chest’ from Covid-19

He received his diagnosis on Thursday morning after insisting on multiple tests when his mild flu-like symptoms would not go away.

In an accompanying video presumably taken at his home before he went to see the doctors, a reasonably healthy-looking Vavi thanked people for all the messages of support he’d been getting. He said he was struggling with a “little bit of heavy chest and heavy lungs” despite feeling “fine” and that he probably just needed “lots of rest”.

Lockdown regulations declared invalid and unconstitutional by high court ‘Severely constrained’ KZN government increases King Zwelithini’s budget to R71.3 million US records 743 coronavirus deaths in 24 hours

He said everyone else at his home had tested negative except for his seven-year-old twin son, who the doctors were not worried about. “The doctor advises that the kids run this thing off without even having to take medicine,” he was told.His wife would need another test just to ensure she was negative for the illness.

In a video clip of himself that he posted on Saturday, he can be seen to be sweating heavily – possibly from steaming himself as a home remedy – and saying that he’s determined to beat the illness.“Corona must die,” he declares. He vows in the clip that “we are made of stern stuff” and that “corona has finally met its match”.

“It’s going to be defeated. It’s going to be chased out of this body. It’s going to die outside. We will be the last to stand. It will fall. It must fall.”The coronavirus can cause varying levels of severity and symptoms among different people, and it especially differs according to age and overall health.
