PESHAWAR: The Awami National Party (ANP) senior leader Ghulam Ahmed Bilour has recovered from coronavirus.

The family of the veteran politician said his test was conducted again which came back as positive. The ANP leader had contracted coronavirus last month. He was not feeling well for some days after which he decided to undergo test for coronavirus which came back as positive. He had isolated himself at his home after the diagnosis and recovered after treatment of several days.

Usually, the elderly people become easy victims of coronavirus, particularly when they have some other illness as well. However, the senior Bilour fought bravely and defeated the disease. Bilour’s family had also pondered shifting him to a private hospital when he was ill, but he recovered well from the disease at home.
