London has claimed that Pakistan was retained on the “red list” for not providing the data regarding its ongoing COVID-19 testing and vaccination campaign. There has been no disclosure by the NCOC of data on COVID-19 vaccination and testing to the British government. Pakistan, therefore, remains on the red list. The Pakistani government, however, refutes the British government’s claim.
Furthermore, Islamabad argued that the UK never requested data from Pakistan on COVID-19. The experts state that Pakistan’s data on the Coronavirus vaccine and testing capacity are shared regularly with all embassies in Pakistan. Additionally, NCOC’s website and Twitter account provide those same figures.
