Scientists reveal the reason behind sudden decline in COVID-19 cases in Pakistan

They are of the view that if precautions are not taken, the virus situation may be more catastrophic as compared to the post-Eid ul Fitr virus situation.

Scientists state that herd immunity is playing no role in the dramatic decline of Coronavirus cases in Pakistan. They believe that the death ratio is too high for that possibility, as it is achieved only if 70 percent to 80 percent of the population is infected.

Eminent Urologist and former CEO of the Pakistan Kidney & Liver Transplant Institute, Professor Dr. Saeed Akhtar, dismissed claims that the virus is less severe now:

I can’t give any plausible reason for the drastic reduction in the number of coronavirus patients and deaths in Pakistan. Scientists are working on this question worldwide. Anyone who talks about the precise cause for the lessening of the disease’s severity tells a lie.

Although Dr. Akhtar said that Allah Almighty bestowed his blessings upon the people and the country during the pandemic, he does not understand the significant drop in the number of COVID-19 patients and deaths in Pakistan.

Dr. Akhtar said that wearing face masks can easily control 80 percent of the pandemic:

Wearing face masks is the best prevention in the absence of a vaccine. We have to pay a heavy price without a vaccine in case of herd immunity.

The experts highlighted the importance of the strict implementation of the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) during the upcoming Eid ul Adha and Muharram ul Haram.

They are of the view that if precautions are not taken, the virus situation may be more catastrophic as compared to the post-Eid ul Fitr virus situation.

Prof. Dr. Ataur Rehman, an esteemed scientist, listed several reasons behind the phenomenon of Covid-19 decline in Pakistan. Both, Dr. Akhtar and Dr. Rehman acknowledged that the “smart lockdown” imposed countrywide controlled the pandemic.

Dr. Ataur Rehman reminded people that the Coronavirus peaked in June in Pakistan. After that, the curve began to flatten as almost one-third of the daily cases reduced. He believes that this reduction is because people are less forthcoming in getting themselves tested.

The renowned scientist rejected claims that point fingers towards the government for hiding the real COVID-19 stats. Dr. Ataur Rehman said that number of patients can still be concealed, but there is no way the death figures can be buried.

Admitting that the virus scenario has improved a lot since last month in Pakistan, Dr. Ataur Rehman said:

The smart lockdown and the immunity South Asians have developed because of pollution and other factors are why the present pandemic is not as disturbing in Pakistan as in other countries. The BCG vaccination administered during a Pakistani kid’s childhood can be another possibility of the low number of virus contractions. However, we cannot be sure as there is no proof of this yet.

  • He is absolutely right ! People got sick and recovered without being tested. All those who suffered fever, flu like symptoms, even diarrhea or abdominal cramps had COVID-19.
