COVID Cases Steadily increasing in Karachi and Hyderabad

The National Institute of Health (NIH) has recorded 171 confirmed Covid-19 cases in Pakistan in the last 24 hours, indicating that the virus is spreading again.

According to data released by the National Institute of Health (NIH) on Monday, the positive ratio of COVID-19 cases in Karachi and Hyderabad has once again surpassed 10%, despite a steady increase in cases across the country.

Over the last 24 hours, at least 57 patients with infectious diseases have been transferred to the critical care unit. Pakistan has 3,369 active cases, according to the NIH. The number of cases has risen across the country, especially in Hyderabad, where the positive ratio has risen to 16.67 percent.

Town Positivity Ratio
Karachi 10.08%
Mirpur Azad Kashmir 5.26%
Islamabad  2.07%
Mardan  3.39%
Abbottabad  1.2%
Lahore  1%

According to the Dawn daily, hospitals across the country are nearing capacity, and the situation in major cities, including Islamabad, the federal capital, is worse by the day. According to another report, the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS), Islamabad’s largest hospital, has reached capacity, with patients forced to wait for a bed at the emergency center.

Similarly, there isn’t a single ventilator available at Polyclinic, one of the city’s largest hospitals. According to the report, the hospital’s management believes it will be unable to increase capacity for COVID-19 patients because 7,000 patients attend various departments each day.

The government has announced a vaccination campaign against covid in Rawalpindi. During the fourth phase of the Reach Every Door (RED) initiative, 297,427 individuals will be immunized against the coronavirus. The new sub-variant is to blame for the recent outbreak of Covid-19 infections.

Pakistan’s response to the pandemic was praised around the world, and it was seen as one of the few countries that dealt with the virus effectively enough to prevent the outbreak from spreading further. In March, the United Nations Development Programme published a report that listed Pakistan as one of the nations that had fared well in the fight against the Covid-19 epidemic.

One twitter user @BasedGhauri24 stated his concern by tweeting, “You all should announce for mask mandatory.”

Another twitter user @afahim also shared their concern regarding the matter, “57 patients in critical care?”

Twitter user @bukharitania tweeted, “Cases in Islamabad are rising.”
