Pakistan Crosses 13,000 Infections, 280 Fatalities

Coronavirus infections and fatalities in Pakistan have ballooned up in the past week after lockdown restrictions were eased for select industries. Punjab remains the worst-hit province with its cases crossing the 5,000 mark, followed by Sindh, KP, Balochistan, AJK/GB, and Islamabad. Over 3,000 people have also recovered from Covid-19 so far in the country.

A day after the countrywide lockdown was extended to two more weeks, the government announced on Saturday that it would also keep the international flight operations suspended till May 15 to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus. The Civil Aviation Authority in a tweet said, “…remaining provisions as applicable to the suspension of Int flights reflected in previous orders remain unchanged.”

Govt officials foresee the country’s virus peak to arrive mid-May when Pakistan could see as many as 20,000 cases and 5,000 deaths. But, the World Health Organization has warned that infections in Pakistan could surge to 200,000 by mid-July if effective measures are not taken to curb the spread.
