Pakistan virus deaths drop, but government warns of surge in Eid al-Fitr, South Asia News | Instant News

Pakistan has witnessed an 80 percent drop in deaths from the corona virus but risks a surge in new cases after the upcoming Eid festival, a government health official said Sunday.

According to government data, Pakistan witnessed a daily death of the virus reaching around 150 in June. On Saturday, only 24 new deaths were reported on the previous day.

Zafar Mirza, senior health adviser to Prime Minister Imran Khan, told reporters that six percent of those tested positive for coronavirus.

“The number of deaths caused by coronaviruses has dropped 80 percent in Pakistan,” he said.

Overall, Pakistan has confirmed more than 270,000 cases including nearly 5,800 deaths.

However, some observers warn that these figures do not reflect the actual level of cases in Pakistan, with many people reluctant to be tested and the overall level of testing is still low.

Faisal Sultan, who helped lead the government’s coronavirus response, said on Sunday that only 23,000 of the 50,000 tests available had been used in the previous 24 hours.

The health ministry did not immediately respond to questions about why testing rates are so low.

Many people ignored social distance guidelines and flocked to mosques and markets during the last religious holiday that marked the end of Ramadan in May, helping trigger a subsequent surge in COVID-19 cases across Pakistan.

The increase prompted the World Health Organization to call for new closures throughout Pakistan.

For the upcoming Eid al-Adha festival, which starts Friday in Pakistan, Mirza said people should not flock to the animal market and urged them to “buy sacrificial animals online to prevent a surge in new coronavirus cases”.

“Any negligence … can worsen the situation,” he said

Karachi Mayor Wasim Akhtar said that launching a sanitation effort before Eidul Azha was a good effort that would produce long-lasting results. He said the number of trucks used to carry sacrificial animal waste must be increased.
