2,255 New Cases, 31 Deaths in 24 Hours in Pakistan

Pakistan saw its deadliest day in terms of daily new cases as the country added 2,255 new positive coronavirus cases in just 24 hours to take the tally to 34,336.

Of new cases, more than half or 1,356 cases were recorded in Punjab only, while Sindh reported 593 new cases in past 24 hours. KP, Balochistan and Islamabad added 146, 97 and 43 new coronavirus cases respectively.

Sources said that spike in cases in Punjab could be due to back-log of tests in the province as the province reported only 800 cumulative cases in previous two days; indicating that a lot of tests came back yesterday and were reported accordingly.

Number of deaths reached 31 in 24 hours, of which 24 patients were on ventilator; indicating a high fatality rate when patients are on ventilator. Number of hospitalizations reached 7,876, of whom 195 are critical while another 128 patients are on ventilator. Hospitalizations grew sharply yesterday as 1,215 new hospitalizations were recorded in a single day.

It is expected that fatalities could spike in coming days as number of patients in ICU are on the rise. A total of 8,812 have so far recovered and discharged from the hospitals.
