Senator Mirza Afridi tests positive for COVID-19

LAHORE: Independent Senator Mirza Mohammad Afridi has tested positive for COVID-19, becoming the latest politician to contract the coronavirus.
Afridi had gone to Peshawar last week where he had distributed ration bags in different areas of the city. He started experiencing high temperature and body pain a few days back and had gotten himself tested as a precautionary measure.
The senator received his results today and is currently in isolation at his home in Lahore. He said that he is feeling better though the symptoms persist. He has urged his contacts to get tested as well.
Senate Deputy Chairperson Saleem Mandviwala contacted Afridi to inquire after his health. PPP Senator Sherry Rehman also sent best wishes to Afridi and hoped that he will make a complete recovery. “Just spoke to him and he sounded positive. He is young, normally very active and can fight this off Inshallah,” she said in a tweet.

Yesterday, Sindh Governor Imran Ismail announced that he had been diagnosed with the virus. Last month, Sindh Education Minister Saeed Ghani had also tested positive for the virus but made a full recovery.
Earlier this month, KP Director of Public Health Dr Ikramullah Khan had also tested positive for the virus, while last week Kamran Khan Bangash, special assistant to the provincial chief minister, was also been infected.
