The Queen actress Thembsie Matu has revealed she is Covid-19 free after going through a trying time fighting the disease for the past five weeks.
“It's been a while since I spoke to y'all or communicated in any way but I would like to express my gratitude because I am still alive. God is merciful.”
“I would like to thank the staff at the hospital because they worked hard to keep me alive. Covid-19 almost had my life, I lay in that hospital bed for five full weeks, fighting for my life while they worked to keep me alive.”
The star said battling the coronavirus was hard and spiritually she often felt like she would be engulfed by darkness but gospel songs kept her going. She mentioned Joyous Celebration in particular, saying Ndenzel' Uncedo Hymn 377 helped her hold on to the hope that God won't leave her while she fought for her life.
“I'm very grateful that I made it out of that dark space, that I am still alive and Covid-19 free. But I'm not fully recovered at the moment.”
Thembsie said she was back home but hadn't fully recovered.
