Virus Stricken Journo Maughan Out Of Hospital

Journalist Karyn Maughan who tested positive for Covid-19 has been discharged form hospital having survived the “worst of the illness”.

The News24 journalist spent three days in hospital before she was well enough to go home.

“I am being discharged from hospital this morning! The Covid vaccine really protected me from the worst of this illness,” tweeted Maughan on Monday.

“I’m so grateful to the amazing doctors and nurses at Park Lane Hospital Thank you for your messages, prayers and love I really felt your light around me.”

When she went into hospital Maughan had tweeted: “Please pray for me”.

Friends and collegues will be relieved she pulled through.

South Africa has just gone past the peak of the third wave, driven by the more deadly Delta variant.

On Tuesday the National Institute For Communicable Diseases said there were 7 210 new Covid-19 cases in the last 24 hours and 370 fatalities.

South Africa’s vaccination effort has improved with more than 6 million individuals having had a jab.
