Dr Zafar Mirza, the special assistant to the prime minister for health, resigned from his post on Wednesday.

He announced the decision on Twitter.

I have resigned as SAPM. I came to on a personal invitation of @ImranKhanPTI leaving WHO. I worked hard & honestly. It was a privilege to serve Pakistan. I am satisfied that I leave at a time when COVID-19 has declined in as a result of a grand national effort.

“I have resigned as SAPM. I came to Pakistan on a personal invitation of Imran Khan leaving WHO,” said Dr Mirza.

“I worked hard and honestly. It was a privilege to serve Pakistan. I am satisfied that I leave at a time when COVID-19 has declined in as a result of a grand national effort.”

His resignation came less than an hour after Tania Aidrus resigned.

Before joining the government, Dr Mirza was the director of health systems development at the WHO EMRO office.
