Pakistan reports highest single-day toll with 105 COVID-19 deaths

Currently, there are over 48,000 active cases with more than 2,500 people in critical condition

The second wave of the novel coronavirus has hit Pakistan quite hard, with yesterday’s death toll reaching 105. This is the first time since June that over a hundred people passed away due to the COVID-19. The highest number of single fatalities was a June 25, when 125 people lost their coronavirus lives. The daily number of new cases has lowered somewhat in the last couple of days, with fewer than three thousand reported. In recent days, they have been getting closer and closer to four thousand a day.

The death toll continues to mount

Even with fewer cases reported, the death toll is mounting by the day. To date, just over 9,000 people have died in Pakistan due to the coronavirus. Punjab, which has the highest population of all the provinces, has the most deaths with 3,452, followed by Sindh with 3,222. In KPK, there has been 1,489 death reported while 176 covid related fatalities have been reported in Balochistan. In Islamabad, 379 coronavirus deaths have been reported. 99 and 193 death have been reported in Gilgit Baltistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir, respectively.   

Increase in active cases

The recent increase in active cases is a matter of grave concern. At the moment, there are more than 48,000 active coronavirus cases, with over 2,500 in critical condition. The second wave’s mortality rate appears to be higher than the first one in Pakistan and around the globe. It is imperative to be careful at this crucial juncture.

Vaccine on the horizon

Several vaccines will be available to treat the coronavirus. In Pakistan, it is expected that the vaccines will be available in either March or April as the government has set a fund of $250 million for this purpose. However, in the meantime, avoiding risky behavior is the right approach.
