‘Quarantined’ PM Imran Khan chairs media team meeting

Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz has shared a photo of Prime Minister Imran Khan on social media chairing a meeting of his media team at Bani Gala, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.   

The fact that Prime Minister Imran Khan chaired the meeting at Bani Gala on Thursday in spite of having contracted the coronavirus a few days ago and resultantly going into isolation raises the question whether he had tested negative for the virus before attending the meeting.

Other prominent figures seen in the photo are Senator Faisal Javed, Zulfi Bukhari and principal secretary to PM. 

Senator Faisal Javed also tweeted the picture, saying Prime Minister Imran Khan is fit and fine, and doing well while holding meetings following coronavirus SOPs.

Prime Minister Imran Khan, who got a vaccine shot on March 18, had tested positive for the coronavirus on March 20. His wife Bushra Bibi also contracted the Covid-19 on the same day.

The announcement was made by Special Assistant to the PM on Health Services Dr Faisal Sultan in a tweet uploaded on Saturday.

According to Dr Faisal Sultan, the prime minister had placed himself in self-isolation at his home in Banigala.
