Not only Jacinda Arden: President Alvi also sets an example by ‘waiting for his turn’ at local sweet shop
New Zealand PM is not the only one setting examples!
The story of New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Arden and her fiance Clarke Gayford being turned away from a cafe because it was ‘too full’ according to COVID-19 SOPs became viral a few days ago.
In Arden’s exemplary leadership, New Zealand has put up the most inspirational fight against the novel virus. By taking timely precautionary measures on a personal and collective level, the country has nearly eliminated COVID-19.
I have to take responsibility for this, I didn't get organized and book anywhere. Was very nice of them to chase us down st when a spot freed up. A+ service.

But it looks like PM Arden is not the only one who is leading from the front. Pakistan’s President Arif Alvi has also set an example for all of us by waiting in the line at a local sweet shop.
The story was shared by Alvi’s son, Awab Alvi. In a tweet, he said that the President visited a local sweet shop to buy ras malai. Covered in a cap and a mask, he waited
for his turn for half an hour and followed all the necessary protocols.
😇 dont have to look too far @PresOfPakistan does this often eg 2 days back clad in a Cap & Mask he went to buy Ras Malai at Jameels in ISB
He walked up to counter not realizing a social distancing line on side, was asked to follow line, he did & took him ½ hour to buy 👍🏽

Later, Jameel Sweets also shared the CCTV footage on their Twitter account. The sweet shop wrote that it was ‘shocking’ to see the President of Pakistan standing in the queue with ordinary citizens.
They added that if they knew it was him, they would have served him special Ras Malai.
