Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has tested positive for Covid-19, Dr Faisal Sultan, his aide on health, said on Saturday. Khan received the first jab of Chinese vaccine Sinopharm on Friday.
“PM Imran Khan has tested positive for Covid-19 and is self isolating at home,” Sultan tweeted.
Khan, 67, was vaccinated as part of the nationwide anti-coronavirus vaccination campaign which is underway in its first phase. The COVID-19 vaccine is being provided to people 60 years of age and above and to front-line health workers.
Pakistan on Wednesday received half a million doses of coronavirus vaccines donated by China. The second consignment of the Sinopharm vaccine was received at the Nur Khan airbase in Rawalpindi.
