In the Prime Minister’s cabinet, Dr Zafar Mirza isn’t the primary person to be COVID-19 positive – secretary of state Shah Mahmood Qureshi tested positive last week.
So far, many political leaders in Pakistan have tested positive, like Shehbaz Sharif, Ahsan Iqbal, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Yousuf Raza Gilani, Asad Qaiser, Imran Ismail, Saeed Ghani and Sheikh Rasheed. Fortunately, all of them have recovered from COVID-19.
Sadly though, many of our leaders have also gave up the ghost thanks to their health being impacted by COVID-19. These include Syed Fazal Agha, Shaheen Raza, Ghulam Murtaza Baloch, Munir Khan Orakzai and Mian Jamshedud Din Kakakhel.
