Director Public Health of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Dr Ikramullah has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

Finance & Health Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Taimur Khan Jhagrda said in his tweet:

Today, one of our most committed public health professionals, and part of our COVID19 response team, Dr. Ikramullah, Director Public Health KP has tested positive for Corona virus. I just talked to him. He is in high spirits, feeling good, and isolated at his home.

He further said:

I want to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Ikramullah for his service, and wish him a full recovery so he is back to fight this fight for our province. He is an asset that we all are proud of.

He continued:

We promised you we would be truthful in all matters related to this disease, & that continues to be the case which is why I am making this announcement with Dr. Ikram’s permission. The relevant premises are being sanitised, and close contacts will be tested for their safety

Taimur Khan further said:

Dr. Ikram had to take the risk of attending a workplace so others are safe. Many of us do, and accept the risk, above all thousands of front line workers.

KP Minister Taimur Khan Jhagrda concluded:

While there are no easy answers, & the next few weeks and months will be challenging ones both from a health and economic perspective, resolve, discipline, and working together will beat this. Insha’Allah I have faith that Allah will reward our efforts and get us through this.
