Prime Minister Imran Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi on Saturday tested positive for COVID-19 and have isolated themselves at their home.
Initially, the announcement of the Prime Minister’s test result came through his Special Assistant on Health Dr. Faisal Sultan. “PM Imran Khan has tested positive for Covid-19 and is self-isolating at home,” Faisal Sultan announced on Twitter.
However later in the evening Syed Zulfi Bukhari, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister for Overseas Pakistanis in a tweet said that besides the Prime Minister, his wife too tested positive. “Wishing our First Lady & PM Imran Khan a speedy recovery. May Allah give them both shifa [health].”
