Coronavirus takes the life of another on-duty health worker from Gilgit-Baltistan. Malik Ashtar, a 55-year-old radiology lab worker from Nagar district, had contracted COVID-19 locally while working with affected patients.

He was transferred to a quarantine center set up by the district administration after he showed symptoms. Around a hundred other Coronavirus patients who have recent travel history, mostly to Iran, have been kept in this quarantine center in Minapin, Nagar.

Hundreds of Zaireen who have recently come back from Iran have been kept in various quarantine centers in Gilgit-Baltistan. The most affected districts remain Nagar, Gilgit and Skardu.



The affected paramedic Malik Ashtar passed away four days after being shifted to this quarantine center in Nagar, Gilgit-Baltistan’s most hard-hit district.

His burial took place in Nagar under tight security and only concerned personnel were allowed to perform the final rituals.

As Hassan Nisar once said "Alot of people died BECAUSE of Pakistan. Nobody has died FOR Pakistan" . Stop turning him into a SHAHEED. he was no shaheed...he did NOT want to die...He died because he wasa put in a DANGEROUS situation becasue the LAANTI government didn't provide him Protective gear. Now since you are lacking heros in your country becasue all your heros are foreigners (Abdali...Babur...Ghauri...Ghaznavi...Salahud Din) you are going to portray him as some hero who died for Pakistan. As Hassan nisar said "Alot of people died BECAUSE of Pakistan....nobody died FOR Pakistan." PTI LAANTIS are a curse upon us....

Please act responsibly, do not post these sorts of pictures in the public forum. Pay respect to the dead. I don't why admin allows it.

there are some people who are born to be d!ckheads and you my friend take the cake. Have some shame and decency at this difficult time unless you are an enemy of motherland. Or maybe you are ... this guy is a shaheed in my eyes as he died performing his duties to save others. Which clearly you will never understand because it requires you to be a human with a brain and some common sense. Enjoy being a d!ckhead Mr. Patwari ... Even though I know you are a waste of pretty good genes.
