“We are sharing Sana Hashwani’s test results in order to dispel the rumours that she has Covid19. Sana returned from the UK and took the test as a precaution so as not to endanger family members with compromised immunity. She tested negative but nonetheless placed herself under self-isolation as any sensible person returning from abroad should do at this time,” learn the official assertion.
“The virus can affect anyone and it is our social moral and religious duty to fight against it in whichever way we can. Using another person’s photograph is a gross violation of her privacy and an incredibly callous act.”
We’re glad to listen to that she hasn’t been affected by the extremely contagious virus. That stated, though Hashwani had travelled just lately, we’re assuming she displayed no signs because it was merely “precautionary”. The truth that she was in a position to get examined so swiftly highlights the inequality of our healthcare system.
Lately, Humayun Saeed, Adnan Siddiqui and Jibran Nasir got here below hearth on social media for getting examined for the novel virus whereas displaying no tell-tale indicators (regardless of having journey historical past) and had been accused of losing scarce check kits within the nation when a two-week quarantine would’ve sufficed.
After all mass testing is essential and has proven to be very efficient in some nations like South Korea however Pakistan lacks sufficient sources as it’s. If you’re low-risk, don’t have any signs and might afford to self-isolate as an alternative, do this and go away the check package for somebody who could also be essential in poor health. At the least till we’re higher geared up.
