Coronavirus positivity ratio continues to be stable in Pakistan at below 2%

Despite carrying out the highest number of tests of Covid-19 in Pakistan in one day, the positivity ratio continued to be stable at below 2 per cent. Out of a total of around 42,299 tests, only 799 came out positive. Significant build-up in Covid-19 testing is being done to carry out sentinel testing at educational institutions in order to identify early trends, if any.

A study by country’s leading blood diseases institute suggests that there is a slim chance of a second wave of the novel coronavirus here, further strengthening the government’s policy of reopening of businesses and schools.
