PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif tests positive for COVID-19
PML-N National Assembly Chairman and Leader of the Opposition Shehbaz Sharif tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
PML-N Spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb and the leader Attaullah Tarar confirmed his test results.
He was tested twice and after his appearance at NAB, he tested positive for the coronavirus.
He is currently in quarantine at his home in Model City. Shehbaz has cancer and had previously asked NAB to allow his questioning through video conferencing. The appeal was refused, however, and he had to testify in person before the court.
Aurangzeb said by calling him, NAB was putting his life in danger.
Some other PML-N members, including Ahsan Iqbal and Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, have also tested positive for the virus.
