Covid-19’s second wave has hit Pakistan hard, where the infection rate is continually spiking. Several Pakistani celebrities and notable personalities have been engulfed in the tide.
Recently, Sabaat co-stars Usman Mukhtar and Ameer Gilani and models Saheefa Jabbar Khattak and Farwa Ali Kazmi, and singer Jawad Ahmed have tested positive.
On Tuesday, Saheefa Jabbar Khattak took to her Instagram and shared that she is Covid-positive. On her Instagram story, she requested her followers to pray for her.
The actress and model are currently isolating at home with her husband.
Late Monday night, Ameer Gilani conducted a question-answer session with his followers. While answering one of the fan questions, he revealed:
I have tested positive for Covid-19, and there is no sense of taste and smell. I request you to remember my family and me in your prayers as your prayers are very powerful.
On the other hand, Last week, Usman Mukhtar also tested positive for the virus. The actor took to Instagram to announce the news:
Stars Who Contracted The Virus
However, Other than Sabaat’s co-stars, pop musician Jawad Ahmad also tested positive for Covid-19 earlier this week. The singer is now isolating at home.
Alongside Jawad Ahmad, model Farwa Ali Kazmi also tested positive for the virus, days after walking the ramp for Hussain Rehar’s solo show. Initially, Farwa dismissed her symptoms, thinking it was seasonal flu. Later, the model discovered that she had contracted the virus. Regarding this, Farwa said:
All those with cough, body aches, and headaches but no fever, please get yourself tested. I had delayed it thinking its seasonal cold, but it is not. I think I got it by sharing food and cigar with a Covid-positive.
While It should be noted that many celebrities contracted coronavirus in the first wave of Covid-19. These included Rubina Ashraf, Nida Yasir, Yasir Nawaz, Naveed Raza, Noman Sami, Alizeh Shah, Alyzeh Gabol, Abrar ul Haq, Sakina Samo, Shehzad Roy, and Bilal Maqsood. Moreover, the good news is that all of them recovered from the virus. Besides, several politicians, including PTI’s Ali Haider Zaidi and PML-N’s Dr. Musadik Malik, have also tested positive for COVID-19.
So they just told me I have tested #COVID +
Means I have to quarantine & isolate myself!
Maybe down, but not out.
Will keep using Social Media & expose those who have robbed this nation & continue to damage us even today
May Allah give strength to all those who stand for justice!

I have just about received my COVID 19 result. Unfortunately, I am coronavirus positive, and am going into isolation. Please keep me in your prayers.
Most regretfully, I would miss one of the most important family events – my loss!
