Pakistan’s ex-PM Zafarullah Jamali put on ventilator after heart attack
RAWALPINDI – Former prime minister Mir Zafarullah Khan Jamali was placed on ventilator at a hospital in Rawalpindi after his health deteriorated due to cardiac illness.
Jamali was shifted to Armed Forces Institute of Cardiology last night after complaining of chest pain. He had recovered from COVID-19 in May earlier this year.
Earlier today, reports emerged that the former prime minister has died of heart attack, however, they turned out to be wrong.
President Arif Alvi also shared a tweet expressing condolence over his death. Minutes after, the president deleted the tweet, stating that Jamali is alive and has been placed on ventilator.
"I have deleted the Tweet, based on wrong info with apologies to the family. Mir Zafrullah Jamali is on the ventilator. I talked to Omar Jamali who confirmed this. May Allah grant him immediate recovery," Alvi wrote.
