Corona-Positive Imran Ismail Had Violated Govt’s Guidelines On Social Distancing
A day before testing positive for coronavirus, Governor Sindh Imran Ismail met his mother ignoring the guidelines of government to not meet elderly people during the coronavirus crisis.
The governor while speaking to a private channel said that the day before testing positive for the virus, he had iftar with her elderly mother. He said now all his family members including his mother would be tested for coronavirus.
Commentators on social media said that it was irresponsible of Imran Ismail to meet his mother despite health experts’ warnings and knowing the fact that he could be a potential virus carrier as he was very active and meeting many people during the coronavirus lockdown.
Governor Sindh protocol aur social distancing ki dhajian uratay huay apni walda se milrahay they.
These are our rulers. There are strict guidelines not to meet your eldery. But will the media ask why he broke the guidelines? https://t.co/vKrtwm2SCV
