At the rate that the virus is spreading right now, maybe it's best that all television productions come to hold until the virus is under control.

The telenovela joins The River, Skeem Saam, Muvhango and Rythm City as shows that had to put production on hold after cast and crew members tested positive for the coronavirus.

It's been a rough last couple of days for the drama as they are still mourning the death of actor Jovan Muthray. He portrayed the character of Nilesh on the soapie.
