COVID-19 enters dangerous phase in Pakistan again, experts warn

The COVID-19 has again entered dangerous phase in Pakistan, experts have warned, while announcing that the second wave of the deadly virus had started in the country. The National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC), after continuous warnings of rising Covid-19 cases across the country, made it compulsory for all citizens to wear a face mask when stepping out of their homes.

The percentage positivity — the number of positive cases in samples of 100 — has reached close to 3pc and number of daily cases has risen to around 750. 

NCOC has issued a warning that if people continued to flout health guidelines, it would have no choice but to order closure of services again.
