Situation Report: 284 New Cases and 4 Deaths Reported in 24 Hours

Pakistan continues to fare better than expected in terms of new Coronavirus cases in the country. According to the latest official data, 284 new cases were reported in Pakistan on April 9th, slightly up from 248 cases reported a day ago.

Four new coronavirus related deaths were also reported, down from 5 the previous day.

Experts are suggesting that Pakistan is doing well in dealing with Coronavirus due to very severe lock-downs in hotspots and increased testing. However, experts say that the testing capacity needs to be expanded further.

While the numbers are low compared to many other countries, experts caution that measures and efforts need to remain intact to contain the virus. They say it will be very tricky to ease the lock-downs, as a resurgence or rapid spread is always a possibility until a vaccine is developed.

  • Regularly checking the count in Punjab from the twitter account of CM-Punjab and far less cases are shown in these tweets. I know for a fact in my area the confirmed cases are near 63, while the official tweets show this as 29. Not sure who to trust these days,,,
