Bilawal announced a COVID-19 diagnosis just a day before her sister Bakhtawar Bhutto-Zardari’s engagement to a Dubai-based businessman and also before the upcoming rally for the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) on November 30. PPP Senator Rehman Malik together with Health Minister KP Taimur Jhagra hopes that the chairman will get well soon.

Imran Khan refuses to shut down factories amid COVID-19
Although the country continues to register a growing number of positive cases of COVID-19, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has reiterated that the government will not close factories and businesses amid a resurgence of infections and deaths. As of November 26, according to a Johns Hopkins University tally, Pakistan had recorded more than 386,190 cases of COVID-19 with at least 7,843 deaths. But Khan told a Lahore on November 25 that the government would not “cause people to die of starvation while saving them from the coronavirus”
The Pakistani PM appealed to his country to unite with the government in controlling the spike in COVID-19 cases and overcoming the second wave by following standard operating procedures (SOPs). Imran Khan also stressed that his government would not allow the opposition to hold public meetings and “create a potential threat to the lives of the masses” while referring to observations made in an order by the Islamabad High Court that said public gatherings posed a greater threat to public health safety.
