Zwelinzima Vavi discharged from hospital

Labour movement leader Zwelinzima Vavi has been discharged from hospital and is resting in isolation at home.

Vavi wrote in a tweet on Tuesday that he would be tested again on Monday‚ but he remained optimistic.

“Thank you all of you for so much love and solidarity! My wife and 7-year-old boy has shown no symptoms whatsoever‚” he said.

Vavi’s long-time trade union comrade Irvin Jim confirmed on Sunday evening that he had been admitted to hospital after contracting Covid-19.

This after the general secretary of the SA Federation of Trade Unions announced last week Thursday that he had tested positive for the highly infectious coronavirus.

He had also released a video of himself in which he was sweating profusely.
