Shaheen Raza, a PTI MPA in the Punjab Assembly, died of COVID-19 Wednesday morning. She was 69.

According to Gujranwala Deputy Commissioner Sohail Akhtar, Raza was under treatment at Lahore’s Mayo Hospital.

She was initially admitted to Gujranwala’s Civil Hospital, but was later shifted to Mayo Hospital. Raza reportedly contracted the virus while visiting a field hospital.

Prime Minister Imran Khan and Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar have expressed their grief at the PTI leader’s demise. Raza’s body will reach Gujranwala by evening where she will be buried under coronavirus SOPs.

Pakistan has reported over 45,000 known coronavirus cases and nearly 1,000 fatalities so far.

Sindh Education Minister Saeed Ghani, Sindh Governor Imran Ismail and National Assembly speaker Asad Qaiser are some of the many political leaders who had also contracted the virus.
