Pakistan reports lowest COVID cases, India records world’s highest single-day spike

Pakistan reported 213 new cases on Sunday with more than 18,000 tests

Pakistan reported a four month low number of positive coronavirus in over four months with 213. Six people passed away from the virus. A total of more than 18,000 tests were carried out. The constant decline in the COVID-19 cases is a good sign, but one must remain careful of a possible rebound in numbers.  

The recently appointed prime minister’s advisor on COVID-19, Dr. Faisal Sultan san in an interview that while the decline is a promising sign for Pakistan, he remains cautious. “At the end of the day I keep reminding people that this is like smoldering embers and the embers are there. You provide them with fuel and with a little bit of oxygen, they will flare up,” he said.

A total of approximately 296,000 people have tested positive for coronavirus in Pakistan. Out of those, almost 281,000 have recovered. A little over 6,000 people have passed away due to the illness. The known active cases in the country are under 9,000.

India sees record single day surge in Covid cases

India reported a record 78,761 cases of coronavirus in a single day. India has reported more than 75,000 new cases four days in a row. Currently India is third in terms of number of positive coronavirus cases in the world with 3.62 million, behind the United States and Brazil. However, at current pace, India is likely to cross Brazil in the next couple of weeks. Their mortality rate in comparison with other, more developed countries is relatively low. Nearly 65,000 fatalities have occurred in the country due to COVID-19. The risk of spread is gaining more strength in India since it is easing on the lockdown restrictions to boost its stalling economy.
