Faisal Edhi tests negative for coronavirus

Faisal Edhi, the head of Edhi Foundation, who had earlier contracted the novel coronavirus, tested negative for the infection according to his son.
On April 15, Faisal had travelled to Lahore and then to Islamabad, where he met Prime Minister Imran Khan and donated Rs10 million on behalf of his organisation for PM’s COVID-19 Relief Fund.
It later emerged that the philanthropist had contracted the coronavirus after he got himself tested. Faisal had mentioned earlier that he started experiencing severe headaches and fever on April 16 after which he got tested for coronavirus.
Later, on the advice of his personal physician, PM Imran also got himself tested for coronavirus and the result came back negative.
His son, Saad, said Edhi’s test came positive on April 21 after which he went into self-quarantine. “He is currently residing in Islamabad.”
Saad had said that he and other staff members, who recently interacted with him, have tested negative for the second time.
“Other family members, who are in Karachi, were not tested since they showed no symptoms,” Saad said, requesting that people should pray for Faisal Edhi’s speedy recovery.
