(Karachi) Sindh Energy Minister Imtiaz Ahmed Shaikh has contracted coronavirus, media reported on Sunday.

In a tweet, Shaikh said: "I have tested positive for Covid-19 and am in self imposed isolation. It is requested to all friends that have been in contact recently to observe necessary precautions and stay safe!"
