PM Imran Khan Has Tested Positive For COVID-19. No, You Can't Blame The Vaccine

By Sarah Shaukat | 20 Mar, 2021

PM Imran Khan has tested positive for COVID-19 and people are creating false linkages with the vaccine.

The vaccination campaign is in full swing in Pakistan with senior citizens and front-line workers being vaccinated at the moment. Ever since the vaccine was made, there have been many reservations regarding its side-effects. To combat that many public figures and celebrities have recorded getting vaccinated to encourage others to do the same. 

Recently, Prime Minister Imran Khan also received the first dose. However, it has now been reported that he has tested positive for COVID-19. The news was shared by PTI’s Special Assistant to Prime Minister Faisal Sultan on Twitter.

As soon as the news surfaced people started questioning the effectiveness of the vaccine. 

The PM has tested positive only a few days after the first dosage. This does not invalidate the effectiveness of the vaccine. To pacify and minimize panic amongst the public many public figures have stepped up to explain this.

Hammad Azhar explains, with facts, that the vaccine builds up to 80%  immunity after two weeks of the second dosage.

Journalist Zebunnisa Burki has made a valid point regarding that the government must clarify the effectiveness of the vaccine so that people stop questioning it.

Writer and Activist Nuzhat Siddique also shared her dismay regarding journalists questioning the vaccine and requested everyone to avoid fear-mongering.

We hope the matter is reported responsibly so that the concerns regarding the vaccine are clarified based on logic and this does not discourage people from getting vaccinated.

The news has come as a shock to many. People are sending prayers his way.

We here at MangoBaaz wish the PM a speedy recovery.
