Overnight cases in Pakistan escalated after authorities in recent weeks sounded the alarm about the fourth wave, called “Delta Variant”, which was first found in India.
Last week, Prime Minister Imran Khan issued a clear warning of a fourth wave, calling the “Delta variant” the “biggest concern.”
These concerns were later expressed by Omar, who said that there were clear signs of the onset of the fourth Kovid 19 wave in Pakistan.
Positive rates in different cities
Muzaffarabad: 21.03 percent
Karachi: 19.29 percent
Rawalpindi: 11.97 percent
Peshawar: 9.4 percent
Islamabad: 6.2 percent
Lahore: 3.8 percent
In addition, more than 40 cases of “Delta variant” have been reported in Karachi this month, while the positive rate in the city has also increased. On Wednesday, the Sindh government re-imposed corona virus restrictions in the province, closing schools and indoor dining, as Karachi recorded a positive rate of 17.11%.
Asad Omar, Minister for Federal Planning and Special Measures, said that the construction of Kovid 19 patients in hospitals has started rapidly.
Critical care patients are also on the rise, he tweeted, adding that the shape of the delta has wreaked havoc in the region.
“Please follow the SOPs and get vaccinated as soon as possible. Don’t risk your life and the lives of others.
The deadly virus has killed 47 people and reported 2,545 new cases in the past 24 hours, according to the National Command and Operations Center. The positive rate in Pakistan has increased to 5.2%. On Wednesday, 580,000 doses of vaccine were given.
Special Assistant to the Prime Minister for Health Faisal Sultan pointed out that in order to control the spread of the fourth wave of Code 19, Delta Variant, it is necessary to follow the Corona virus SOPs issued by the government. He appealed to the nation to wear masks in public places and avoid crowds and gatherings.
On Wednesday, Azad Jammu and Kashmir banned tourists for 10 days after new cases surfaced in the area. On the other hand, schools, cinemas, indoor dining and indoor gyms in Sindh are closed indefinitely.
The NCOC has announced that this will be mandatory for tourism and this requirement will be “strictly enforced” during the upcoming Eid-ul-Adha holidays.
