Sabelo Handula of Khayelitsha.

Tygerberg Hospital linen-stores assistant, Sabelo Handula, of Khayelitsha, is this week’s nominated coronavirus Hero Amongst Us.

The campaign lauds hospital employees inspiring others during the fight against Covid-19.

Mr Handula has worked at Tygerberg Hospital for seven years. He says Covid-19 did not affect his work because he and his colleagues stuck to the rules and regulations, including physical distancing, wearing masks, not touching their face and eyes and always sanitising hands.

He says he is motivated to go to work each day because he sees the importance of patient care. 

“I want to thank my fellow colleagues in the linen department for working together in this difficult time. Soon we will overcome this pandemic.”
