New Cases

Pakistan saw its highest volume of new cases per day yesterday as 577 new cases were reported in just 24 hours, taking the total to 3,864.

  • New cases rose sharply, painting a grim picture. However, the majority of cases were from the quarantined facility in Raiwind.
  • Now, more than 25% of total cases in Punjab, i.e. 536 are from Tableeghi Jamat
  • We can expect a similar rise in cases as more hotspots develop in coming days
  • Good thing is that government is quarantining these hotspots to confine the spread
  • New Cases per province / region:
    • Punjab: 425
    • KP: 85
    • Sindh: 51
    • Balochistan: 11
    • Islamabad: 01
    • GB: 01
    • AJK: 03

  • Growth rate of new cases reached 17.55%, up from 14% a day ago
  • Increase in growth rate is mainly due to sudden spike in cases from Raiwind

  • Doubling period increased to 5.6 days, meaning that positive cases — at this rate — will double in Pakistan in just 5.6 days.
  • We would want this doubling rate to grow on daily basis. Considering trends from other countries, we would want this to be higher than 10 to consider the pandemic under control.

New Deaths

Pakistan saw four new coronavirus deaths in Pakistan yesterday, including a doctor from Karachi.

  • Death rate in Pakistan is seemingly under control
  • Growth rate of new deaths went under 10% yesterday, which is a good sign
  • Doubling period of deaths also increased to 12.5 days, which is very positive
  • Expect rise in deaths in coming days (in 7-15 days), due to increased number new cases during past two days

  • Can you also show the detailed breakdown city wise so that the people of that area can adopt accordingly. This would be very helpful.

  • Too poor graphics and presentation, even GEO and ARY developed interactive data, graphs and maps this time. I never observed any hardwork for reporting and publishing by team Pro Pakistani. Even they never caption and credit a photo.
