Even though he plays a doctor in the popular soapie, "Binnelanders", the actor felt that there was a war in his head because he did not know much about the virus.  

Hugo said he could not taste and it felt like he had the flu. 

The actor admitted to Martin Bester, “I was shocked! It's like getting your marks in high school and you failed. It was a strange feeling.

I get anxious very quickly – I would wake up in the evenings and have a panic attack”. 

Hugo said he only went to work and went to the grocery store now and then prior to being diagnosed. 

The actor shared advice to people who might be anxious about getting sick: “There are rules and people must obey the rules. Wear your mask, sanitise your hands and get your mindset right.”
