Days after Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, President Dr Arif Alvi Monday informed that he also tested positive for the coronavirus.
This comes as the President and his wife Samina Alvi received the Chinese vaccine Sinopharm earlier this month, according to news agency Xinhua.
Alvi’s news of testing COVID-19 positive comes almost 10 days after Prime Minister Imran Khan tested positive for the virus. He had also taken the Chinese vaccine.
“I have tested positive for Covid-19. May Allah have mercy on all Covid affectees. Had 1st dose of vaccine, but antibodies start developing after 2nd dose that was due in a week. Please continue to be careful,” Alvi wrote in a tweet.
On March 20, Prime Minister Imran Khan had also tested positive for COVID-19 after which he had self-isolated himself. The premier had also been inoculated on March 18 — two days before he tested positive for the virus.
