Pakistan records over 4,000 daily COVID-19 infections
Islamabad: For the first time in seven days, over 4,000 individuals in Pakistan tested positive for the COVID-19 in the past 24 hours, according to statistics from the National Command and Operation Center on Thursday morning. The country’s daily coronavirus cases have primarily remained in the 3,000-4,000 range for almost a month.
According to the most recent official statistics, 63,161 coronavirus tests were performed throughout the nation in the past 24 hours, with 4,062 coming back positive. Meanwhile, 84 additional individuals died from COVID19 throughout the country over the same period, bringing the total to 26,497. According to NCOC statistics, the daily death toll has been hovering around 100 for more than a week.
The number of active cases fell marginally for the second day in a row to 91,589 as 4,136 recoveries. The overall number of rescues has now reached 1,076,112 people. The current positive rate is 6.43 percent. Pakistan’s optimism rating has been less than 7% on 15 of 17 days since August 24.
Pakistan reports 3,778 new infections per day on average, 64% of the peak – the highest daily average since June 17. So far, at least 64,554,859 doses of COVID vaccination have been given throughout the country. Assuming that each individual requires two amounts, it would be enough to vaccinate about 14.9 percent of the country’s population.
Pakistan reported an average of 1,192,780 doses given per day over the previous week. It will take an additional 37 days to deliver enough amounts to cover the remaining 10% of the population. The coronavirus, or COVID-19, is causing widespread concern for a variety of reasons. Because it’s a novel virus, no one is immune. It is highly infectious, which means it spreads quickly. Since of its novelty, scientists are unsure how it will behave because they have minimal history to rely on.
