Actor Asad Siddiqui announced on social media that he has tested positive for Covid-19. He used the opportunity to promote vaccinations and urge people to get vaccinated.
The actor — who has starred in dramas such as Zebaish and Dil Ruba — posted a message on his Instagram Stories.
"Hello beautiful people! I have contracted Covid-19 and finally after dodging it for a good two years, I bite the dust," he said. "Point is I was fully vaccinated and still contracted it. However, my symptoms are very mild. Which means the vaccines work. So anybody who thinks the vaccines are a hoax, you are wrong. They are working and I request everyone to get vaccinated. And please follow all SOPs."
The actor requested for prayers, followed by a request for movies, games or books recommendations to help Siddiqui pass the time while in quarantine.
All 15+ citizens can register themselves by sending in their your CNIC number to 1166 or registering on nims.nadra.gov.pk and walking in to their nearest centre for vaccination.
