Pakistan, on Wednesday, recorded the highest number of COVID-19 cases in a single day with 4,131 positive cases in the last 24 hours.
As per government figures, around 4,131 coronavirus cases have been reported in the country, whereas 67 deaths were reported across the country in the last 24 hours.
Due to the current surge in virus cases, Pakistan’s coronavirus tally stands at 80,463 cases, with 28,923 recoveries and 1,668 reported deaths so far.
The development comes as the government, on Monday, had further eased lockdown restrictions and directives after the meeting of National Coordination Committee (NCC) chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan.
Highlighting the economic and social circumstances, Prime Minister Imran Khan had stated that around 25 per cent of the population which amounts to roughly 50 million people live below the poverty line.
“Pakistan’s situation is different than that in China or Europe. I should not have stopped businesses and construction because we had to balance it. Coronavirus is not going away until a vaccine is not formulated. We have to live with it,” he said.
