Punjab Assembly’s youngest member Sania Ashiq Jabeen has become the latest victim of the coronavirus.

Sania has self-quarantined herself at home after her test for the COVID-19 returned positive.

The PML-N MPA became the youngest parliamentarian in Pakistan’s politics when she took oath on a reserved seat for women on August 15, 2018 at the age of 24.

Belonging to a middle class and non-political family, she joined politics in 2012 when she started work on the ground level to coordinate the youth. She holds a degree in Doctor of Pharmacy from the University of Punjab.

On July 9, she posted a picture of herself on her Facebook page wearing a mask pleading with the people to stay safe.

“Wearing mask cannot guarantee safeguard against infection. But it has ability to show our care towards ppl around us and keep us cognisant of new realities of our social life: Social distancing, avoiding unnecessary visits, sanitisation. Stay safe Pakistan!” she wrote.
