Heidi got her results days after her colleague Shahan Ramkissoon tested positive to the virus as well.
On Tuesday, Heidi welcomed Shahan back on the air, as both journalists were broadcasting from their homes.
She said that she is opening up about it because she wants to help to put an end to the social stigma around Covid-19 testing.
“I’ve tested positive for Covid-19 but l only had mild symptoms, but I’m fine and I am also certain that I will overcome this. My main concern is to to keep my family safe,” Heidi Giokos said on Thursday.
“I wanted to open up about this because for some reason there’s a stigma and irregardless of my contiouns efforts to wash hands, sanitise everything, wear a mask, I get to know that many of us are exposed to people, will take on that risk,” she tweeted.
Heidi is the latest eNCA journalist to be stuck at home because of Covid-19 after Shahan Ramkissoon and other eMedia staffers tested positive for the virus at the eNCA Hyde Park office.
On Saturday eNuus broadcasted a pre-recorded episode after the newsroom shut down for a deep-clean because of a Covid-19 case.
