The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) founder and leader, Altaf Hussain, is in the Barnet Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU) after being infected by the coronavirus almost two to three weeks ago.
The hospital staff confirmed that the MQM leader is in the Covid-19 ward of the hospital under intensive care and no visitor, friend or family is allowed to meet him.
On Sunday night, an audio message of the MQM leader was distributed in which the former Karachi strongman appealed, in a shaken voice, to his supporters to pray for him after declaring that he had been admitted to the ICU.
“I have been in the ICU in hospital for the last 20 days. It is due to your (supporters’) prayers that I have been able to record this message on this day of Saturday, Jan 30, 2021,” the MQM leader had said.
Hussain had added: “May Allah protect everyone from this disease, Covid-19,” he said, and appealed to listeners to “take precautions and help each other”.
