Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) senior leader Hamza Shehbaz Sharif has contracted novel coronavirus, spokesperson of the party Marriyum Aurangzeb confirmed.
Marriyum Aurangzeb revealed that Hamza had a high fever in the past three days and asked the authorities to transfer him to the hospital. She added that the government should fulfill its responsibility to provide medical facilities because any negligence may endanger his health.
Shehbaz Sharif also said in a tweet: “My son has contracted the coronavirus in prison. After facing the NAB case during Mosharraf’s tenure, he now has the utmost courage and determination to compete with NAB-Niazi nexus. Fight for political revenge.
The opposition leader also asked everyone to pray for the speedy recovery of his son Hamza.
On the other hand, prison officials claimed that they had not yet received the final report of Hamza Shehbaz’s coronavirus test, and said that after receiving the report, the prison authorities will immediately isolate the defendant.
Officials said that Hamza may have contracted the disease from the seat of the court rather than the prison. They added that Hamza’s food also came from his home.
Sources said that yesterday Hamza Shehbaz (Hamza Shehbaz) also spent time with his family, including his father Shehbaz Sharif (Shehbaz Sharif) also embraced him.
