Just after Christmas, Rachel Kolisi shared on Instagram that she had contracted Covid-19. She immediately went into isolation to protect the rest of their family…

However, on Tuesday, Rachel shared that two of her children had contracted the virus, and “it’s been rough.”

While her three-year-old, Keziah, tested positive but showed no symptoms, 13-year-old Liphelo had “full on adult symptoms,” says Rachel. “The virus – I don’t know what strain of it – but Covid is definitely affecting kids too.”

She promised to keep followers updated on the family, and share information and advice through interviews with health professionals.

From her side, Rachel has completed 14 days of isolation and her sense of taste and smell are returning slowly. However, she still has some symptoms. “I still sound like I have sinus, and I still run out of breath really quickly but the pain in my chest starting easing up on day 10.”

“One of the hardest things”

The doting mom said one of the hardest things she experienced during her isolation was not being able to be near her kids and comfort them when they needed her.

“Loving them through a window has been excruciating. Every time they hurt themselves and my immediate reaction has been to get up and go to them then I realize I can’t leave the room.”

“And the days they’ve stood outside begging me to touch, kiss and hold them because they don’t understand. Honestly it’s been one of the hardest things I’ve experienced as a parent.”
