Usman Mukhtar Tests Negative For Coronavirus In 10 Days
Usman Mukhtar has a lot to be thankful for as he started the week with some great news. The director and actor, who had tested positive for Covid-19 ten days ago, has now announced that he is free of the virus.
As the Coronavirus cases in the country surge to new highs with the arrival of the second wave, taking the casualty count to over 7000 in Pakistan, Usman Mukhtar's recovery wasn't the only good piece of news yesterday as a pharmaceutical company in the US announced that its vaccine presented a 90% efficacy in preliminary trials. The entire world heaved a sigh of relief.
The actor took to Instagram and broke the good news to his followers and told them that he is now Covid-19 free after testing negative for the coronavirus over the weekend.
"Guys Alhamdulillah, by the Grace of God and your best wishes my Covid test came out negative."
"I am overwhelmed by your support. The journey itself has been overwhelming."
Usman Mukhtar urged people to “please stay safe and stay healthy.”
The Sabaat actor then added how important it is to stay safe. “It is important for us to consider that this is not just for ourselves but also for people around us. Thank you!” he said.
Usman Mukhtar recently made his Cannes debut with Bench, his directorial short film starring Rubya Chaudhry alongside himself.
Bench was shortlisted for the Cannes International Independent Film Festival in September. And on October 20, the Embassy of Pakistan in Paris tweeted about the screening of Mukhtar's short film. "Pakistani short film Bench by Usman Mukhtar is being screened today at the Cannes International Film Festival taking place in France from October 18-20, 2020," read the tweet, which Usman Mukhtar also shared on his profile.
