Bilawal had quarantined himself on Tuesday after one of his staff members was confirmed to have been infected.

The news came days after his elder sister Bakhtwar’s engagement was confirmed with a Dubai-based businessman. The engagement ceremony will take place on Friday, November 27, at Bilawal House, Karachi.

The latest development means that Bilawal will also be unavailable for Pakistan Democratic Movement’s (PDM) next rally in Multan due on November 30. He is, however, expected to address the rally via video link.

Best Wishes Pour In

Health wishes poured in as soon as he broke the news on Twitter.

PPP Senator Rehman Malik wished the party chairman a speedy recovery.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Health Minister, Taimur Jhagra also sent him best wishes with a political touch.


  • This was meant to happen, God forbid! These politicians kept chanting ‘social distancing’ and ‘stay home’ but themselves never acted upon it. However, wish them and all those affected health and quick recovery.
    Furthermore, he will address PDM jalsa via videolink! He can self-isolate himself but what about the people participating in these jalsas? Shame on these dirty politicians.
