According to the country’s health minister, Pakistan’s prime minister, Imran Khan, has tested positive for the corona virus and is isolating himself.
According to Reuters, the 68-year-old former international cricketer has been meeting frequently since late, and addressed a security conference in the capital Islamabad, which was attended by a large number of people.
He addressed the conference without wearing a mask, and attended another gathering Friday to inaugurate a similar housing project for underprivileged people, a day after he was vaccinated against coyotes.
Pakistan has seen a sharp rise in corona virus infections, although the scale of the crisis is less serious than in many Western countries. In response to the growing number of cases, partial lockdown restrictions were reintroduced in some parts of Pakistan.
According to official figures, 3,876 people tested positive in the last 24 hours, the highest number of daily infections since the beginning of July, for a total of 620,000. There were 42 more deaths, bringing the total to 13,799.
On Thursday, Khan received the first dose of the synoform corona virus vaccine. It takes a few weeks to create an exemption. “Khan had a positive experience on Saturday after having a mild cough on Saturday, and now he has a mild fever,” his spokesman said.
“Please do not associate it with the corona vaccine. Immunizations are ready a few weeks after the immunization. Be sure to vaccinate your elders and loved ones. Be careful,” the spokesman said.
Information Minister Shibli Faraz told the Geo News television channel that during a series of public engagements this week, the prime minister contracted the infection before he could be vaccinated.
In the footage, Khan was broadcast shouting his jaw in an attempt to allay serious hesitation in some sections of the population. Pakistan’s anti-polio drive began March 10 with the elderly.
When the epidemic began last year, Khan told the nation in a speech that “97% of patients recover completely,” although he later warned that “people are not taking it seriously.”
