EAST LONDON - While listeriosis has resulted in a high death rate, not everyone has died from exposure to the bacteria.

Lindiwe Ndamase's stepdaughter Luleka (40) is in Frere Hospital in East London.

Luleke was diagnosed with listeriosis.

Travelling every day by taxi to visit Luleka has put a strain on Lindiwe's already meagre finances.
