Imran had earlier contracted the virus two days after he was vaccinated against the virus. However, he had received only the first dose and not the second required jab of the vaccine.

The Ministry of National Health Services had also clarified that the premier was "not fully vaccinated" when he contracted the virus. The ministry added that only the first dose was administered, which is "too soon for any vaccine to become effective".

The ministry had further added that anti-bodies against the virus develop 2-3 weeks after the second dose of the vaccine is administered.
