KARACHI, Pakistan

Pakistan recorded 24 deaths from the new corona virus over the past 24 hours, the lowest one-day casualty of the virus in the past three months, the Ministry of Health said on Monday.

With new deaths, the total number of deaths due to COVID-19 reached 5,787, according to data.

A total of 1,487 new infections were reported throughout the country during the past 24 hours, bringing the count to 271,886.

More than 70% of all patients, or 236,596, have recovered so far.

Pakistan’s infection rates have also dropped significantly over the past few weeks, compared with an average of 5,000 cases per day in May and June.

The highest number of cases one day was almost 7,000 last month.

However, health experts warn that a sharp fall in the number of COVID-19 cases could be the result of fewer tests. India, the country hardest hit by the virus in the region, currently tests 15 times more every day than Pakistan.

The capital of Islamabad is currently following a locality-based locking strategy in a number of hotspots in about 20 major cities in an effort to stem the spread of the virus.

According to official statistics, the country has so far carried out more than 1.8 million tests for this disease.
