Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah said this on Friday in his daily statement about the COVID-19 situation in the province. “Today is a sad and unfortunate day when we lost 31 people because of COVID-19 in this province. They include men and women and the majority of them are parents. “Most of the deaths have occurred in Karachi, where the largest number of patients with coronavirus have so far been diagnosed,” CM said.
He stated that between Thursday and Friday 804 people in Sindh tested positive for COVID-19, of whom 634 were from Karachi. He added that the number of people infected with infectious diseases in the province had reached 26,113.
“I am sad today to see the deaths of 31 patients,” he said as he prayed for the souls of the deceased and offered condolences to the bereaved family.
The CM explained that 804 new cases appeared after 3,316 new tests. The government has so far conducted 171,222 tests that detected a total of 26,113 cases, he added. “We can control the spread of the virus further if we all take precautions but sorry to say the situation is disappointing. Our people don’t want to work together. “
However, the Shah also had good news to offer. He said 1,563 other COVID-19 patients had recovered. “This is again the highest number of patients cured overnight and now the number of patients who have recovered so far has reached 12,750, which is 49 percent,” he explained.
