Special Assistant to the Prime Minister (SAPM) for Health Dr Zafar Mirza has tested positive for COVID-19. He revealed on Twitter on July 6 that he has mild symptoms and that after testing positive, he has been staying at home in isolation.

In the Prime Minister’s cabinet, Dr Zafar Mirza is not the first person to be COVID-19 positive – Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi tested positive last week.

So far, many political leaders in Pakistan have tested positive, such as Shehbaz Sharif, Ahsan Iqbal, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Yousuf Raza Gilani, Asad Qaiser, Imran Ismail, Saeed Ghani and Sheikh Rasheed. Fortunately, all of them have recovered from COVID-19.

Sadly though, many of our leaders have also passed away due to their health being impacted by COVID-19. These include Syed Fazal Agha, Shaheen Raza, Ghulam Murtaza Baloch, Munir Khan Orakzai and Mian Jamshedud Din Kakakhel.


We hope that SAPM Dr Zafar Mirza recovers from COVID-19 soon, along with FM Shah Mahmood Qureshi and everyone who is infected.
