Capt (retd) Safdar, the spouse of PML-N vice-president Maryam Nawaz, returned to Lahore from Gilgit-Baltistan where he was participating in the election campaign ahead of November 15 polls.
On the other hand, Maryam Nawaz has tested negative for the virus.
According to PML-N secretary information, Marriyum Aurangzeb, Maryam Nawaz had conducted the test on her way from Skardu to Islamabad.
According to Dharti News, Capt (retd) Safdar has been admitted to the Sharif Medical City Hospital where he is receiving treatment.
Last month, Capt (retd) Safdar was briefly arrested during the couple’s stay in Karachi for the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) event. The development came a day after he chanted political slogans at the Quaid’s mausoleum.
