Two days ago, Prime Minister Imran Khan was vaccinated according to the guidelines of NCOC as he is above 60 years old. Many people have reservations about the Chinese vaccine but it is possible that the Prime Minister contracted the virus before he was vaccinated, but it has not been confirmed yet. Pakistan’s first lady Bushra Bibi has also tested positive for coronavirus.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has wished for the speedy recovery of Pakistani PM Imran Khan.
Best wishes to Prime Minister @ImranKhanPTI for a speedy recovery from COVID-19.

One must know that the vaccines don’t prevent infection but rather strengthen the immune system through antibodies. The development of COVID-19 antibodies could take up to 28 days after the first shot. If a person is vaccinated he/she can still be infected with coronavirus but the disease won’t be that severe. The vaccinated person can contract the virus and can also transmit it to others.
