The total number of coronavirus cases in Pakistan have surged to 29,426 while the death toll has reached 638 with deaths with the numbers being reported out of Punjab being reduced over the last two days. We have discussed this below in this update.
The daily coronavirus update from the Sindh Health and Population Welfare Department reported four more fatalities bringing the provincial death toll to 180.
Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Health Department reported 13 more fatalities bringing the provincial total to 234 in their daily COVID-19 update.
Gilgit Baltistan Health Department also reported one more fatality and the total provincial death toll is now four and the recovery rate remains high at 70 percent as total cases reach 430.
Now it’s time to discuss the total of Punjab and what’s been going on with it. Now, the total number of fatalities in the province is being reported at 192 by the Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) and we’ve included this in our report.
However, the Health Department of Punjab reports the death toll at 191 which is strange as PDMA is working with the Health Department during the crisis and they’re number never match up.
Punjab Health Department Report:
The problem is that PDMA was reporting much higher numbers two days ago when it reached a total death toll of 194 in Punjab according to the report below.
However, the next day PDMA reported eight more fatalities while the total death toll dropped to 191 as can be seen in their report below.
Also, the Government has made the COVID-19 site for updates on cases however, they don’t know how to operate the site as it does not provide timely updates and sometimes isn’t updated for an entire day. This specific source for the latest figures is always outdated.
