Prime Minister Imran Khan has defeated coronavirus as his latest test returned negative, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

There were earlier reports that if the coronavirus test report came back negative then the prime minister will chair the federal cabinet meeting on Thursday.

Earlier, 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.”

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 before being infected.

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 last.

However, 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.
