A two-member bench directed by Justice Tariq Abbasi heard the plea. Shehbaz Sharif’s lawyer informed the court that he still has shown symptoms of coronavirus and the second test of Shehbaz Sharif has not been conducted yet.
The court remarked that when Shehbaz Sharif did not take the test, how can it be said that he is still a patient of coronavirus. The court then ordered Shehbaz Sharif to get tested for coronavirus from the Institute of Public Health on 2nd July.
