In these harsh times, when the deadly coronavirus has disrupted world peace, Pakistan has been fortunate to rise as a combating nation. With an increase in cases, the government and other authorities concerned have made and implemented an impactful strategy to control the pandemic.
As of now, America has been the most severely hit country by the novel coronavirus with the highest number of cases reported. On the other hand, Pakistan, being a third world country is fighting the virus more strategically as compared to several other developed ones. According to the latest stats, till now, more than 6,000 coronavirus positive cases have been reported in Pakistan.
Recovery rate and the number of virus-free cases
Because of the immediate actions, taken against the outbreak, the country has been successful in controlling the rising number. The constant emphasis from the government bodies on adhering to the advised precautionary measures, the nation has been quite safe. However, several studies even suggest that the coronavirus isn’t considered as a ‘lethal’ disease if proper measures are taken on time.
Pakistan has definitely been fortunate enough to not witness extreme conditions due to the virus. As per the globally recognized worldometer website, till now, 6,505 coronavirus cases have been reported in Pakistan. Out of which 1,645 positive patients have been fully recovered and sent home. However, a loss of 124 innocent lives was also recorded due to the virus.
Pakistan can only improve the recovery rate if people will come forward and get themselves tested. The coronavirus test itself is very easy. A majority of Pakistani hospitals are conducting a swab test. The lab just takes a special cotton swab and sample the inside of the throat or nose. The sample is then sent to the laboratory for confirmation. During this time, the person has to take the precautionary measures seriously.
