Still Pakistan has reported 221,896 coronavirus cases, with 4,451 deaths. The country has continued to see about 4,000 new cases every day, amid dropping daily test numbers Pakistan is still suffering from it.
We can only expect that government is sure about how to cope with the circumstance. We pray that Pakistan’s government will be able to get rid of the problems and tackle the financial, political and health crisis that it is currently facing and will get rid of this fatal disease soon and will be back on track.
