Federal Education Minister Shafqat Mehmood announced Tuesday he has tested positive for coronavirus.
In a tweet, the minister revealed he was feeling “fine with mild symptoms.”
“InshAllah will get well soon,” he added.
A day earlier, the minister had chaired the Inter-Provincial Education Ministers Conference (IPEMC) which had decided to hold examinations of classes 10 and 12 after June 20.
Summer vacations, according to an official press release issued after the meeting ended, will be limited and province will decide how many leaves to grant as they see fit.
Mehmood, Chairman of the IPEMC, had urged all federal units to ensure timely vaccination of teachers, supervisory staff, and other administrative staff.
