Norton MP, Temba Mliswa Tests Positive For Coronavirus

Norton legislator (independent), Temba Mliswa has said he tested positive for coronavirus on Thursday. Mliswa said he had tested negative on Monday and Tuesday. He posted on Twitter:

Dear Colleagues, Honourable MPs, Parliament staff, Norton constituency and friends. Just to let you know that despite taking all precautions and testing negative on both Monday at Norton Hospital and Tuesday at Parly, I have just tested positive for Covid-19.

After hearing of the prevalence of Covid-19 amongst staff at Parliament yesterday, I decided to self isolate today. I also chose, as a precaution, not to risk attending a function to mark National disability day in Norton, also today, where the Minister of State was presiding.

He said he contacted his doctor for another test and the result was positive. He urged everyone who has been in contact with him to self-isolate and get tested for coronavirus. Mliswa added:

It’s the responsible thing to do once you’ve been in contact with someone who’s tested Covid-19 positive, isolate as well as letting people know

We must learn not to stigmatise Covid-19 as it’s not only about you if you test positive, but it’s also about being responsible and serving the next person. The country must really just invest in test kits for now

This was exactly my point yesterday, I think I should be known as Prophet Mliswa forthwith. Forewarned is forearmed and disclosure is critical in mitigating the spread of the virus. It’s sad Togarepi couldn’t comprehend this point.

Mliswa said he has mild symptoms.
