Nearly one lakh People infected, more than 2000 deaths

 According to the country's Health Ministry, 4,960 new cases have been reported in the last 24 hours and 67 people have died. So far 98,943 cases have been reported in the country and 2,002 people have died. So far 33,465 patients have been cured of the infection.

Refusal to enforce strict lockdown

Prime Minister Imran Khan refused to implement a strict lockdown to prevent the spread of virus amidst the fast-growing cases in the country. He said that by doing so, the condition of the country's economy will deteriorate and poverty will increase.

The Express Tribune reported that Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday called for creating awareness among the public about the severity of the epidemic and the need for strict adherence to standard operating procedures (SOPs).

There was a spurt in new cases

Earlier this week, Imran Khan ordered the reopening of more sectors of the economy by relaxing the lockdown to save people's livelihood, especially daily wage earners. However, since then there has been a spurt in new cases.

Nearly four lakh people died due to corona infection worldwide

Let us know that in December last year, the first case of the corona virus was reported in China. Since then, the virus has spread all over the world.

 Around four lakh people have died of corona infection worldwide and more than 68 lakh cases have been reported. America has been affected the most by this. More than 19 lakh cases have been reported here and more than 1 lakh people have died.
