Pakistan’s coronavirus tally tops 251000 with over 5250 deaths

Pakistan's coronavirus tally

The number of Pakistan’s positive coronavirus tally has surged to 251,625 while the nationwide tally of fatalities has jumped to 5,266.

According to the official Covid-19 data, a significant reduction in the number of positive cases has emerged and the recovery cases are on the rise as the country crossed the 100-day mark last week in its fight against the contagious respiratory disease which has claimed more than 5,000 lives.

This trend if continues the country may reach the peak of coronavirus soon and the strategies to flatten the Covid-19 curve by imposing smart lockdowns in hotspot areas may have yielded the desired results.

But, according to many doctors and rough estimates, cases are not decreasing as they seem as people have just stopped getting tested and the government has slowed down the testing capacity.

The official fatality number in the country now is 5266 and it is also understood that the real death count may be much higher as all the deaths in rural and far-flung remote areas are not registered as Covid-19 deaths.
