Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president Shehbaz Sharif has tested negative for the novel coronavirus.
Shehbaz Sharif took a test for COVID-19 after PML-N’s deputy secretary general Attaulah Tarar was diagnosed as positive for the disease. He had sent his samples to a private lab, which were declared negative later.
Attaullah Tarar in a tweet unveiled he has been infected by the coronavirus.
He tweeted, “I have been tested positive for COVID-19 Would like to request all those people who have interacted with me in the past few days to get their tests done and take precautions accordingly. Request for prayers.”
A number of government functionaries and politicians have contracted the virus in the country. Some of them even succumbed to the deadly disease.
