Bilawal’s political secretary Jamil Soomro earlier tested positive on Nov 25, prompting Bilawal to have his tests, that too came positive.
Bilawal recently returned to Karachi recently after an extensive electoral campaign for the Gilgit-Baltistan general election and later attended a Pakistan Democratic Movement rally at Peshawar.
The PDM is determined to hold another rally at Multan on November 30 and another one at Lahore. The NCOC has recommended a ban on public gatherings on Nov 11 and later Prime Minister Imran Khan announced a bar on holding of any such gatherings on Nov 25. The Islamabad High Court too had ruled against any such public rallies, owing to the recent spike in cases of coronavirus.
40 deaths were reported on Wednesday, a bit lower than the figure of 59 of a day earlier, however the number of fresh cases has continued to rise with the latest tally touching 3,306 in a day.
