Media personality Somizi Mhlongo has become the latest South African celebrity to test for Coronavirus.
Somizi posted on his Instagram account to share that he had gone to a private hospital after experiencing a sore chest and coughing.
On the video the Idols judge is seen wearing a mask while waiting for the doctor and starts off by saying: “So guys I am at a private hospital to do tests for the coronavirus…but also like my chest, I am coughing so you never know”, Somizi said.
Somgaga added that he was shocked when he was told that the cost for the test is around R1400.
“But then I get here and I ask how much is it and they go ‘a thousand four, a thousand five’. That broke my heart. I asked what happened to people who can’t afford it and they say ‘no there are public hospitals.”
