The Mdoda family has released a statement following Thembisa’s Twitter announcement that she is fighting for her life in hospital.
On Wednesday, Thembisa said she was at her most vulnerable and said she was fighting “for dear life on this hospital bed”.
Although Tembisa did not disclose her sickness, her family says she is suffering from COVID-19.
The statement from the family says she is receiving the best medical treatment at Sandton MediClinic.
The family also revealed that what made her condition worse was that she was also suffering from an allergy.
“The Mdoda family would like to thank all of you for all the calls and the messages concerning our beloved daughter Thembisa Nxumalo (Nee Mdoda) following a tweet regarding her health. She is indeed hospitalized and receiving the best medical treatment at Sandton MediClinic. She was diagnosed with long Covid-19 which was further aggravated by an allergy. We are fortunate the doctors diagnosed her in time and are treating her with the utmost care.”
According to the family statement, the television presenter will be released in a few days.
