Two lawmakers pass away from Covid-19, two others test positiveArchive
Two members of the provincial assembly (MPAs), one from Punjab and the other from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, passed away from Covid-19 on Wednesday, a day after Sindh minister Ghulam Murtaza Baloch died from the disease.
In KP, ruling Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf's (PTI) Mian Jamshedud Din Kakakhel died in the morning at Islamabad's Kalsoom Hospital. He was on a ventilator after having tested positive for the novel coronavirus last week, according to Radio Pakistan.
Kakakhel, 65, was elected to the provincial assembly from Nowshera in 2018.
Information Minister Shibli Faraz said he was "deeply saddened" over the passing away of the PTI leader. In a tweet, he said Kakakhel's services for the party would be "remembered forever".
