Minister for Education and Professional Training Shafqat Mehmood on Thursday announced he has tested positive for coronavirus.
“My symptoms are mild so far and I feel fine. Hopefully with some rest will recover soon,” he tweeted.
The education minister warned everyone to continue to take all precautions, especially wearing a mask at all times.
The federal education minister was due to chair a meeting of provincial education ministers earlier in the day to debate closure of schools amid rising COVID-19 cases, which was postponed.
This is not the first time he has tested positive for coronavirus. He last caught the virus in May 2021.
