“When I got to work on that morning, I didn’t feel like myself and I asked a colleague to check my blood pressure. It was high.
“I got tested on June 11 and immediately quarantined at home.
“Five days later, I received my positive diagnosis,” she said.
Initially, Ndokolo, who lives with her two children, said she was shocked and worried but told herself she would beat Covid-19.
“Thankfully, I didn’t have symptoms such as shortness of breath but I did get headaches and I took a lot of Vitamin C.
“My kids quarantined in a back room in the yard and every morning, they would knock on my bedroom window to check if I was still alive because they were so worried,” Ndokolo said.
She said over the months, 304 hospital employees had contracted the virus and 10 had died.
