Sharing the global case report here in his televised briefing, Special Assistant to the Health Prime Minister Dr. Zafar said there were more than 3 million reported Covid-19 incidents worldwide, with 214,111 fatalities and 944,104 recoveries.
He said Pakistan had carried out 157,000 tests so far, leading to proof of 14,680 cases with just 751 new cases added in the last 24 hours.
Sindh recorded highest cases (341) in a day while 194 were registered by Punjab, KP 120, Balochistan 72, Islamabad 16, AJK 6, and GB 2
Although in Pakistan over 3,000 patients have achieved full recovery, in the last 24 hours 20 have succumbed to the disease, which is the highest number of deaths in a day.
Dr. Zafar said deaths would be perceived from a wider viewpoint.
“We have seen 16 to 17 fatalities every day over the last two weeks; as such, the good thing is that there was no substantial change in the total deaths during the span of study.
Mortality evidence is the most reliable method for presenting a country’s true picture of an epidemic. It is on the basis of this data that we take certain decisions, “he said.
In conclusion, the SAPM advised the public to take all measures possible.
“Control of this disease rests in your hands. Evite busy areas, stick to SOPs and stop mosques, “he added.
Dr. Zafar said that frontline healthcare staff who fall in the service line should be entitled to all privileges and rewards enshrined in the current ‘Shuhada Kit’ for government servants who accept martyrdom thus safeguarding home country stability.
The plan would fall into force, accompanied by Azad Jammu and Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan in the federal capital.
