India diplomat’s wife tests positive for COVID-19 at Wagah Border
A member of India’s diplomatic staff tested positive for coronavirus at Wagah Border on Friday after the health authorities tested the delegation for COVID-19 at the border crossing.
The person who tested positive is wife of a member of the Indian diplomatic staff, sources said.
She will quarantine at the Indian High Commission in Islamabad after she was allowed to leave in light of the exemption granted to the diplomatic staff.
The corona patient was part of a 12-member strong Indian diplomatic staff that entered Pakistan from India via Wagah.
Amid a devastating wave of coronavirus in India, Pakistan has already tightened border restrictions with a ban on most types of travel. In addition, borders with Afghanistan and Iran are also sealed amid the third wave.
