COVID-19 incidences continue to diminish in Pakistan

For the second consecutive day on Sunday, the rate of coronavirus positivity in Pakistan remained below 5 percent, indicating that the number of coronavirus cases in the country is continuing to fall.

According to the most recent statistics from the National Command and Operation Center (NCOC), Pakistan has registered 2,580 new coronavirus illnesses in the previous 24 hours, bringing the total number of coronavirus infections recorded across the country to 1,223,841.

Approximately 55,027 tests were taken across the country in the last 24 hours, with 2,580 tests returning positive, according to statistics from the National Center for Opioid Complications.

Meanwhile, a further 71 persons lost their lives to the virus during the same time period, bringing the total number of deaths in the country to 27,206.

The country’s COVID-19 positive rate has increased to 4.6 percent from its previous level of 4.5 percent.

Apart from that, Pakistan currently has a total of 63,909 active cases, which is a decrease from the previous day’s figure. During the previous 24 hours, at least 3,164 additional people have recovered from Covid-19, bringing the total number of persons who have recovered to 1,132,726.

The number of total active COVID-19 cases dropped to 64,564 a day earlier than 2,512 more people tested positive for the virus and 3,610 more people made a full recovery from the sickness, according to the latest data.

Up to September 18, Pakistan had provided at least 70,402,987 doses of COVID-19 vaccination, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Assuming that each individual requires two doses, this would be sufficient to vaccinate approximately 16.3 percent of the country’s population.

Pakistan delivered an average of approximately 954,803 dosages each day during the most recent reported week. According to this schedule, it will take an additional 46 days to provide enough doses to cover an additional 10% of the population.
