Leading philanthropist, Faisal Edhi, has tested positive for coronavirus.
According to the reports, Abdul Sattar Edhi’s son was tested for novel coronavirus two days ago and his report has been confirmed to be positive.
Speaking to a local news outlet, Faisal Edhi’s son, Saad Edhi has said that his father started suffering from COVID-19 symptoms after meeting with Prime Minister, Imran Khan. Faisal Edhi met with PM Khan a few days back to present a cheque of Rs. 10 million for the Corona Relief Fund.
As seen in the pictures, both Imran Khan and Faisal Edhi were not wearing masks. It is still unknown how Faisal Edhi got the virus, however, Imran Khan has since met a number of people including President Arif Alvi, ISI Chief, Lt. General Faiz Hameed, Jazz CEO Aamir Ibrahim, and Telenor CEO Irfan Wahab to name a few.
There’s no news regarding PM Khan taking the coronavirus test, however, having met a carrier of the virus, it is high time that the Prime Minister Office (PMO) issues a statement clarifying the situation.
A number of world leaders, including Boris Johnson, have tested positive in the previous weeks. It is imperative that PM Imran takes the best possible precautionary measures along with Pakistan’s other important leaders and chain of command considering how the virus is more dangerous for aged people.
Earlier, Faisal Edhi had alarmed that the number of dead bodies being transported by their foundation is increasing by the day, suspecting that the deceased people were coronavirus patients despite the fact that they were never tested for the virus.
