WELL WISHES FOR AMBASSADOR MARKS AS SHE RECOVERS FROM COVID-19

We have learnt of the courageous path the Ambassador for the United States of America, Her Excellency Lana Marks, has endured as she battled COVID-19 in the past couple of weeks. It is with much gratitude and relief that we take the opportunity to wish her continued health as she recovers from COVID-19.

Indeed, COVID-19 has touched all of us now either personally or through family, friends and colleagues. As the Ministry of Health it brings us great comfort to know that our health care professionals were there for her in her time of need, performing their functions in a manner befitting her commendations.

We are humbled and honoured that she shares our sentiments and gratitude for the exemplary work of our health care workers. Her words, without doubt, will boost morale amongst our frontline workers- so needed now in this difficult time they face as a profession.

We wish Her Excellency a speedy recovery, strength and good health as she recovers from COVID-19 and are encouraged by her story of personal resilience.

We assure her of our support and availability to assist as a fellow brethren in the war against COVID-19.

Dr Zwelini Mkhize
Minister of Health
