Corona under control with Pakistan’s efforts
Before the start of the month, corona cases were plunged to almost 6,000 cases per day and the death toll was also on the rise. But after imposing smart lockdown in virus hotspots the corona cases started to decline significantly.
With WHO Director General praising Pakistan’s efforts, the government is working even more efficiently to manage the situation and also asking its citizens to take safety measures for their own safety.
