Covid19 : Around 100 employees of Islamabad Airport test positive
The fifth deadly wave of coronavirus in Pakistan has left approximately 100 employees at Islamabad airport infected with Covid19, reported a News agency. The infected employees included senior officers including director, joint director, assistant director and ATC control.
It is feared that more staffers will contract coronavirus due to a lack of prevention arrangements at the Islamabad airport. It was learnt that thousands of passengers were undergoing Covid19 detection tests at the airport.
The Islamabad airport is also crowded with passengers these days due to a complete restoration of flight operations that increased the reservation of the airport officials.
Pakistan recorded 7,678 cases January 22, which happen to be the highest daily figure since the start of the pandemic.
