Prime Minister Imran Khan has made a steady clinical recovery from Covid-19 and his lab parameters have remained stable.

In a tweet uploaded on Sunday, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Health Services, Regulations and Coordination Faisal Sultan announced, “Imran Khan has been advised that he may resume work and build up his work routine over the next few days. This is in line with national and international guidelines.”

Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan had tested positive for Covid-19 on March 20. The 68-year-old self-isolated himself at home in Bani Gala in Islamabad.

It may be recalled that Khan, a former captain of the national cricket team who became prime minister in August 2018, received his first vaccination two days ago.

Prime Minister Imran Khan also came under severe criticism from the opposition for presiding over a meeting of his media team at his Banigala residence on Thursday.

There was no update on the health status of First Lady Bushra Bibi, who had also contracted the coronavirus the same day Imran Khan was infected.
