A day after being diagnosed with the coronavirus, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan took to social media to thank everyone for their "good wishes and prayers.”
Imran, who is self-isolating, also shared a photo of him sitting in a chair at his Bani Gala residence in Islamabad.
Imran and his wife Bushra Bibi tested positive for the coronavirus the other day. The prime minister tested COVID-19 positives two days after receiving the vaccine, triggering a debate on the effectiveness of the jab.
"PM Imran Khan has tested positive for COVID-19 and is self isolating at home,” Dr Faisal Sultan, the premier’s Special Assistant on Health, announced in a Twitter statement the other day. Hours later, PTI leaders confirmed that Bushra Bibi has also contracted the virus.
However, SAPM Shahbaz Gill, in a tweet, said that Prime Minister Imran Khan and First Lady Bushra Bibi are feeling "comfortable with mild symptoms."
The premier’s aide thanked Imran Khan’s fans and well-wishers for praying for his quick recovery. Gill revealed that the prime minister will continue to perform his official duties via video conference today.
The premier also urged people to practice caution on Eid Al Adha and avoid a repeat of the scenario, which unfolded after Eid Al Fitr when "SOPs were ignored and our hospitals choked."
