Local Celebrities Who Have Braved Through Their Battle!

Despite what most people think, being a celebrity comes at a price and in times of peril, becomes even more challenging. If a celebrity is suddenly discovered to be Covid positive, fans start bombarding their social media pages and profiles for updates on how they are handling it. Whether they are quarantined or not, how they are holding up, what’s going on in their lives, are just some of the things they harass them about and it gets really difficult to respond to every single fan message, while you’re battling a disease which could very well be fatal.

Here are some of the Pakistani celebrities who have battled their way through their Covid-19 diagnosis and done it with incredible grace and sense of community. They spent their quarantine and illness riddled time trying to educate their audiences and followers on the gravity of the situation during this pandemic and the precautions they need to take.
