Raees star Mahira Khan is another public figure who has admitted to having a rough time dealing with coronvirus, self isolating, and imploring fans to continue practicing SOPs diligently. Liekwise, host Sanam Jung has also uploaded a story on Instagram, disclosing that she and her daughter have both tested positive for the virus and are quarantining.
