Twitterati Dumbfounded As PM Imran Holds Physical Meeting While Being Covid-Positive
Prime Minister Imran Khan is being criticised on social media for holding a physical meeting while suffering from coronavorus. The PM had tested positive for the virus five days ago after which he had gone in self-isolation. It was announced that the PM would be working from home, yet social media users were surprised when Senator Faisal Javed shared a photo of Imran Khan meeting his media team.
Many have expressed shock at the PM’s disregard for Covid SOPs and questioned the message it would give to the ordinary citizens. Senator Faisal’s tweet has since been deleted.
I have never seen any Covid patient working in a closed room, can’t it infect others? Has anyone explained to PM Imran Khan that what does Quarantine means?
Working from home doesn’t means that you call others and infect them.
Why couldn’t he do zoom meetings? pic.twitter.com/Rr7I6OiLmF

A friend got COVID-19 because he went to meet a covid-19 patient. These visuals will only encourage that kind of risk taking. Our PM has blood on his hands, he was encouraging such reckless behavior before he got COVID-19 & he continues to do it even after getting it himself. https://t.co/uy5gfkElIL
