ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s coronavirus count passed 19,000 on Sunday after 989 new patients were diagnosed in the last 24 hours.

The Ministry of National Health Service said 23 patients died in this period, with a total of 440 victims.

So far, 4,817 people have recovered from the deadly virus, the ministry said.

Of a total of 19,103 virus patients in the country, Punjab has reported 7,106 cases, Sindh 7,102, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa 2,907, Balochistan 1,172, Islamabad 393, Gilgit-Baltistan 356 and Kashmir which occupied Pakistan with 67 cases.

The authorities so far have carried out 203,025 tests, including 8,716 in the past 24 hours.

Prime Minister Imran Khan said late Saturday he was not sure when a vaccine against COVID-19 would be available and expressed concern that “we might have to live with corona virus for six months or (even) a year”.

Khan said the war against the pandemic could be won with wisdom and not by using force to close the masses.
