People are concerned for PM Imran Khan after Faisal Edhi got diagnosed with coronavirus
So many parts of the world are in lockdown, yet the virus is spreading like crazy. The times are uncertain so the panic is just as intense. Pakistan’s Government, like other governments around the world, is working tirelessly to provide the economically and coronavirus-affected people some relief.
A while back, Faisal Edhi met Prime Minister Imran Khan in Islamabad to donate a whopping Rs. 10 million to Prime Minister’s Coronavirus Relief Fund
Faisal Edhi who is the head of Edhi Foundation, and the son of the late Abdul Sattar Edhi, handed over the donation in person to Imran Khan. He also got criticized for that because of allegations that public donations to Edhi organization shouldn’t be handed over to any other authority but should be put to use effectively on the needy.

People are instantly worried for Imran Khan after Faisal Edhi got diagnosed with the virus
People are asking for the Prime Minister to quarantine himself and get tested. There are photos of Faisal Edhi in close proximity to PM Khan from only a few days ago and neither of them is wearing any masks or gloves. While the behavior is reckless in itself, people are asking for PM Khan to get tested immediately.

Also, some have even raised questions whether it was the PM himself who could have given Mr. Edhi the virus
My brain might explode.
Faisal Edhi has tested positive for Corona, everyone is saying that he met the PM a few days back, the PM should be tested too.
But, what if…
Faisal Edhi got the virus from the PM or PM house and they just kept it a secret?

Anyways, people are asking everyone involved to get tested immediately to protect themselves and their loved ones
Incubation period is up to 14 days so an initial negative doesn't mean you can't test positive up to 14 days since contact.
Therefore everyone in touch with Edhi will need to be monitored.
Thumb rule is self isolation for all of those who have been in contact with him.

Pakistanis are also praying for speedy recovery of Faisal Edhi
May all those affected find relief quickly and may we be free of this scary disease sooner, rather than later.
Lots of prayers for Faisal Edhi and all those suffering from #COVIDー19, social distancing is the only way to slow down the spread.
All those who recently met Faisal must get their tests done & quarantine themselves including the PM. #StayHomeStaySafe

News like this is obviously scary because a whole lot of uncertainty is involved regarding the suspected cases and transmission. Let’s just hope that Faisal Edhi recovers as soon as possible and that the PM and his team remain safe.
Take care everyone, stay inside and away from each other.
