Terming the latest Covid-19 developments ‘alarming’ in a video message, Dr. Azra said:

These variants have high transmissibility and fatality rates. These strains are not vaccine responsive either because efficacies of Covid-19 vaccines against these variants have not been determined yet.

I request the public to avoid crowded spaces, social distancing, and unnecessary travel and adhere to Covid-19 SOPs; otherwise, a humanitarian crisis similar to India can erupt in the province as well.

Covid-19 in Pakistan

The country has entered the third wave of the pandemic, and the situation is worsening day by day. The government struggles to adopt a balanced policy where the spread of the virus can be prevented and where the poor man and the country’s economy are least affected.

According to data, 157 people lost their battle against the deadly virus in a single day (the 24th of April 2021)– the highest number ever recorded since the coronavirus was first detected in the country in Feb 2020. The NCOC also revealed that 5,908 more people contracted the virus in a single day, which is the second-highest figure in the current year.

Although a smart lockdown has been imposed in the major cities of Pakistan, critical care facilities continue to be overwhelmed as cases are rising at an uncontrollable rate.
