The Fans of Nida Yasir will be hugely disappointed as she will not be doing her show for at least 15 days, the prescribed isolation time for quarantine. The couple has requested fans to pray for their health.
ARY’s Good Morning Pakistan is one of the most popular morning shows in the country that enjoys a huge fan base among women of all ages. Nida Yasir deserves the credit for conducting the show amicably and for making it popular.
Pakistan has not yet taken Corona seriously. Neither the government nor the people are inclined to respect the rule of social distancing. As of now, the confirmed COVID-19 cases have exceeded 50 thousand mark and the number of deaths are over a thousand.
The relaxation in lockdown during the last couple of weeks in Ramadan is likely to hit the country hard. Cases will spike resulting in the deaths that could be prevented with caution. They are also speculations that the country will come under heavy lockdown soon after Eid holidays.
Celebrities, politicians and sportsmen around the world have suffered from this dangerous virus. We first heard of Tom Hanks and his wife affected by the virus. It is hoped that Nida Yasir and her family will safely go through the period of quarantine by showing resilience against the disease.
