Fawad Ch to go into 3 day isolation on return from US

Taking a leaf from other leader’s book, Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry has reportedly decided to undergo three-day quarantine on his return from the US.

Earlier, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, upon his return from China on Wednesday, went on self-isolation for five days.

He said he was healthy but voluntarily decided to quarantine himself to give a message to the people that being extra careful was essential in the situation the world is passing through.

The minister is expected to return to Pakistan tonight (Friday night) from the United States.

The decision of Fawad Chaudhry is welcome but here’s a problem: The virus can take as much as 10 days to cause any visible symptoms of infection. Therefore, it is better he also takes the test to be fully sure he’s clean.
