President Arif Alvi on Thursday mentioned that he has as soon as once more examined optimistic for COVID-19.

In a put up on Twitter, the president mentioned: “I have tested [positive] for COVID again. Had a sore throat since 4-5 days & was getting better. Felt mildly feverish for a few hours two nights ago. No other symptoms.”

President Alvi suggested everybody to “please resume precautions and follow [safety protocols]”.

President Alvi had first examined coronavirus optimistic in March 2021.

He had introduced on March 29 that he had examined optimistic, just a few days after receiving his first coronavirus jab.

“I have tested positive for COVID-19. May Allah have mercy on all Covid affectees. Had 1st dose of vaccine but antibodies start developing after 2nd dose that was due in a week. Please continue to be careful,” he had tweeted.

Pakistan’s COVID-19 positivity ratio exceeds 2%

Alvi’s tweet comes as Pakistan’s COVID-19 positivity ratio exceeded 2% for the primary time since October 14 final 12 months, as 1,085 new infections have been detected over the past 24 hours.

On October 14, 2021, the positivity ratio stood at 2.03%.

Statistics issued by National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) at this time confirmed that the brand new circumstances pushed the positivity fee to 2.32%. This marks a 0.5% improve in Wednesday’s ratio, which was 1.8%.

However, NCOC chief Asad Umar mentioned that regardless of the nation recording a speedy surge in infections during the last two weeks the federal government has no intention of imposing a coronavirus lockdown for now.

“For now, we are closely monitoring the numbers from Pakistan and across the globe; we are emphasising on vaccinations,” the federal minister for planning, growth and particular initiatives instructed Geo News.

He highlighted that as a substitute of lockdowns, the federal government is specializing in ramping up vaccinations and strict implementation of the bans positioned earlier on sure actions if one just isn’t vaccinated.
