Rumours were circulating on social media that the whole family of Sana Hashwani, co-owner of Sana Safinaz’s, was affected with coronavirus including her daughter Zevair Hashwani and son in law Taimoor Badat.
However, Zevair Hashwani took to social media to put an end to all false rumours about her family while also confirming that only she among her family members have tested positive for novel coronavirus.
“I flew into Karachi on Sunday from London. Came straight home into quarantine as any responsible adult who has travelled abroad should do. Everyone has old and immunity compromised family members. I tested positive Sunday night the day I arrived and have been in quarantine since the flight. I have not interacted with anyone or attended social gathers as Whatsapp claims I have,” Zevair wrote in a detailed Facebook post.
She added, “For those concerned, I am showing no symptoms yet and have still tested positive. Today is day 6 of the total quarantine for me.”
Zeviar also confirmed that her mother Sana Hashwani and husband Taimoor Badaat have tested negative for corona but are in quarantine post-travel anyway.
She also urged the public to maintain social distancing and stay indoors as that is the only way we can fight the global pandemic.
“Please stay indoor stay safe and quarantine yourself regardless it is the only way to beat this global pandemic.”
Zevair concluded her post with a message to the public that they should refrain from spreading false messages and lies on social media as that creates panic.
“Every person on social media has a responsibility towards this pandemic. Creating hype and not fact-checking before spreading rumours only makes the situation worse for everyone,” concluded Zevair.
