Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah on Wednesday announced that he had tested negative for coronavirus, a little over a week after he went into self-isolation after contracting the infection.
Taking to Twitter, the chief minister thanked his friends and well-wishers for their prayers during his recovery process.
"By the Grace of Allah, I have tested negative for COVID-19. Thank you to all friends and well-wishers for their calls and messages. Although I have tried, it hasn’t been possible to respond to everyone individually. Please know that I am grateful for your good wishes," Murad wrote on Twitter.
On November 16, Shah and senior PPP leader Sharjeel Memon both had tested positive for coronavirus.
Earlier, a statement issued by the chief minister's office had disclosed that CM Murad got tested for COVID-19 on Friday after catching a mild fever. "After the test, I went into isolation on doctor's advice," said the chief minister.
CM Murad had said he was asymptomatic apart from the fever.
