Dr Faisal Sultan has confirmed the news of the Prime Minister of Pakistan testing positive for the virus. What is even more shocking is the fact that he had taken the first dose of the Sinopharm Vaccination. With this incident, questions have been raised regarding the effectiveness of the vaccine and is taking the vaccine safe for the body or not. The Sinopharm vaccine is developed by China and Pakistan’s health ministry has responded with a tweet stating- “He only got the first dose merely two days ago which is too soon for any vaccine to become effective. Antibodies develop two to three weeks after the second dose of the two-dose covid vaccine”.
Along with Imran Khan, his wife Bushra Bibi, the first lady of Pakistan, has also tested positive for the virus. He had revealed this in a tweet from his official Twitter handle, stating- “I want to thank everyone in Pakistan & abroad for their good wishes and prayers for the quick recovery of the first lady and I from Covid 19.”
