ISLAMABAD — Pakistan’s education minister says he’s tested positive for coronavirus but has only mild symptoms.
Shafqat Mahmood took to Twitter to say he was feeling fine. Mahmood didn’t say whether he had been vaccinated. Pakistan is offering free vaccinations to people 30 years old or above.
The latest development comes hours after Pakistan’s positivity ratio from COVID-19 dropped to 4.82%, one of the lowest levels of infections in recent months. Two months ago, the positivity rate touched 11 percent.
Pakistan has registered nearly 905,852 confirmed cases and 20,400 confirmed deaths.
