"Let’s do everything we can to protect those around us," pleaded the Springbok captain on social media.

She shared news of her positive test result on Sunday.

COVID is not like flu. It’s so much worse and if my posting can encourage someone to take one extra step of precaution that will be great, also if you know of people not taking Covid seriously please have a conversation with them about it. People are dying.

Siya Kolisi has tested negative for Covid-19.

Seeing how hard it’s been for Rachel has not been easy especially when I can’t physically be with her. And it’s definitely taken a toll on the kids not having their Mom with us.

Siya Kolisi, Captain - Springboks

Thank you to all of the medical workers who are going above and beyond to care for our loved ones when we can’t. Let’s continue to remember the seriousness of this virus and do everything we can to protect those around us.
