Former Prime Minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has tested positive for coronavirus. Abbasi, who is on bail in the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) case, has quarantined himself at home after contracting the virus.
More and more people are becoming a victim of coronavirus every day worldwide and in Pakistan. May it be the political world, entertainment industry, or the common people, it is becoming difficult to tackle the virus.
Party President Shehbaz Sharif is saddened at the news. “Shahid Khaqan Abbasi is a party asset. May Allah grants him health soon,” he said in his statement on Twitter.
