Two Pakistani doctors have been confirmed to be infected with the new coronavirus during treatment of patients.
The primary and secondary health care units in Punjab said on Friday that two doctors involved in the fight against the coronavirus were positive for the disease.
A department spokesman said they had performed duties at the Dhra Ghazi Khan quarantine center when doctors began to show symptoms related to COVID-19.
The statement added that both doctors have since been kept in isolation wards and are at risk.
Previously, a doctor was killed in Gilgit-Barstan while performing his duties at a quarantine center in the area.
Dr. Usama Riaz, who screens pilgrims returning from Iran to Pakistan, tested positive on Friday and was unable to survive.
