'My world stopped for a second': Ndaba Mandela speaks about Covid-19 diagnosis

Ndaba Mandela was at home in Johannesburg with friends on Saturday when he received a call which shook him to the core: he had tested positive for Covid-19.

Mandela, the grandson of former president Nelson Mandela, arrived back in SA from New York the Sunday before, the same night President Cyril Ramaphosa addressed the nation and declared a state of emergency over the coronavirus and Covid-19, the respiratory illness it causes.

The following day, Mandela went to be tested because he had returned from the United States, which is officially listed as a high risk country.
