How Dr Maggz Crushed Covid-19
In the media we continuously hear about heroes. However, they are usually linked to movies and comic books. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been reminded about the true heroes in the world, healthcare workers. Healthcare workers risk their lives on a daily basis to save ours and nowhere has it been more evident than the destructive pandemic. South Africa has entered its 3rd wave of covid infections and one of these heroes has pulled through and crushed covid so that she can continue her heroism as a healthcare worker.
She is Dr Maggie “Maggz” Mojapelo-Mokotedi. Dr Maggz is a highly respected healthcare worker and entrepreneur who not only provides top-tier healthcare to her patients but also works hard to help others and also memorializes those who lost their battles. She continues to help improve healthcare in South Africa, especially in lower-income and disadvantaged communities. Her role in healthcare is revered and respected, not only in Gauteng where she is based but across the country.
At the start of June, Dr Maggz was diagnosed with Covid-19 and was admitted to the hospital as her lungs took the brunt of the infection. Being the strong woman she is, she kept fighting and it’s thanks to the incredible healthcare workers and the continuous well-wishes from her friends, family and patients that she has turned the corner and is on the mend. Dr Maggz was inundated with incredible messages on social media, texts, poems, prayers and even songs that she got every day. She calls it her Covid High Care Memoirs and will be creating an entire book of these memoirs to tell her story of the battle and victory over this disease.
During her stay in hospital, she also continues to work and has launched the HcHeroes Legacy Fund. This fund is aimed at helping struggling families hit by the pandemic and also provide scholarships and memorials for the heroes who have passed.
She continues to be thankful to everybody who has and continues to send her messages and prayers so that she can get better. Dr Maggz will be back soon and continue the work she does to help care for her patients, improve healthcare and help families who need it.
You can still send her messages, prayers or any well-wishes and if you use social media, use some hashtags aimed at her recovery. These hashtags include #DrMaggzCOVIDHighCareMemoirs, #GetWellDrMaggz, #DrMaggzWellWishes, #CovidCrushed #PrayersforDrMaggz #crushingit. You will be featured in the Dr Maggz COVID High Care Memoirs when you do.
