Shehbaz Sharif checks coronavirus negative: PML-N
Opposition leader in the National Assembly, Shehbaz Sharif has recovered from coronavirus after his test reports returned negative, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) spokeswoman Marriyum Aurangzeb reported on Sunday. “Doctors have recommended Shehbaz Sharif for three weeks to get his anti-body testing done,” the party spokesperson was quoted by the official Twitter handle of the party. He added that the doctors also advised the president of the PML-N to be careful before the findings of the antibody tests are released.
PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif tested positive for coronavirus last month being the latest of many lawmakers who tested positive for the infection in the last few days. Aurangzeb had claimed that Shehbaz isolated at home and was taking recommendations from doctors about how to treat the infection. PML-N representative Ata Tarar revealed that Shehbaz himself had tested for COVID-19 after showing mild symptoms of the infection. He said the check result on June 10, at 4pm, returned positive.
“He was summoned by NAB on June 9th. We kept mentioning that he is a survivor of cancer, so even if you decide to perform the inquiry, you can do so through a video connection. Responding to a query regarding the former Punjab chief minister traveling with hundreds of PML-N members and not paying attention to protocols of social space, Tarar said he had appealed to the followers of the party to keep indoors and not assemble in public places.
“There wasn’t a party official [for them to come out] order,” he said. “We tried to escape this scenario. I want to state on record that NAB and Imran Niazi would be kept accountable if God forbid anything to happen to him.”
