KARACHI: PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari announced on Thursday that he has tested positive for COVID-19. “I have tested positive for COVID-19 and am self isolating with mild symptoms,” tweeted the PPP chairman.
Bilawal said that he will continue working from home, adding that he will address the PPP foundation day gathering via a video link. On Tuesday, the PPP Chairman went into self-isolation after his political secretary Jameel Soomro tested positive for corona virus.
Sources said the entire staff of Bilawal House in Karachi has also been directed to undergo COVID-19 tests on the directives issued by former president Asif Ali Zardari. The staff, including security personnel, will not be allowed inside without a PCR test report.
Bilawal was planning to host Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) gathering at Qila Kohna Qasim Bagh Stadium in Multan on November 30. The gathering will also mark the party’s 53rd foundation day.
