Islamabad, March 4 : Pakistan reported the current year’s highest number of deaths from Covid-19 in a single day as the total casualty figure surpassed 13,000.
According to the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC), 75 patients succumbed to the virus in a single day — the highest after 78 deaths were reported on December 21, 2020, the Dawn reported.
The number of hospitalised patients, however, has dropped to the level of November last year as less than 2,000 people are under treatment in the country. Besides, the number of active cases, which was over 50,000 in December, has also fallen to 16,648 as of March 3.
In another development, a team of Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (Pims) has suggested that the Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif should not return to Lahore as travelling would exacerbate his health-related issues and recommended him complete bed rest for one week.
According to an NCOC document, available with Dawn, the death figure of over 75 has been reported only two times since July 6, 2020 and that was in December.
The maximum number of patients admitted to hospitals had surpassed 7,000 on June 15 last year but then it started to decrease and fell to less than 1,000 in October. The count rose again and reached 3,000 in December. However, in February, cases fell, and during the last two days, they have remained below 2,000.
