Punjab reported eight more fatalities according to the Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) bringing the provincial death toll to 202. However, their total somehow made a mistake as they actually decreased the number of fatalities from the previous 194 down to 191. We have attached both their new and old update.
Old Update (7 May 2020):
This is the older update that showed 194 fatalities.
New Update (8 May 2020):
This is the new update showing a total death toll of 191 for Punjab after adding 8 more fatalities to yesterday’s number which is a mistake at their end. If fatalities were removed because they were added because of error, they did not inform any such reason.
As a result, we are taking this total as a human error and taking the correct total according to the new fatalities which comes down to 202.
