Both videos received backlash online and made fun of the elite getting upset about how they are treated and being exposed to COVID-19. Here is what we found online.

The two Maria B videos can definitely serve as the basis for a great lecture on how power works in Pakistan. Particularly the things they say about being offended and upset by the state turning against them.

If someone tests positive for COVID-19, the absolute 𝘭𝘢𝘴𝘵 thing one should do is send them out into society – if you’re unsure of what step to take, contact the relevant authorities. We all have to play our part in flattening the curve – please let’s all be responsible. https://t.co/dTyEKpPUNO
