Listen to the news
- Claim to overcome corona in Pakistan
- Imran government presented positive picture in front of World Health Organization
- Opposition claims the claim is wrong, reducing the number of tests and improving the image
The number of corona patients in Pakistan is decreasing rapidly and Prime Minister Imran Khan has announced that he is trying to re-instate confidence in his country by sending millions of children to school colleges.
But the opposition is calling the Imran government's move dangerous and saying that the government is taking such steps to show its appreciation to the world. The situation is that even now hundreds of cases are coming up. But the Imran government is reducing the number of daily tests to show the number of figures less. Due to this, real figures are not available.
In India, where the number of tests is increasing continuously and every day there are millions of tests, every person is trying to protect them, whereas in Pakistan till date, more than 30 thousand tests have never been done in a single day. While the population of Pakistan is much less than that of India.
If you look at the figures, only 1400 people are being coronated on an average daily population of one million in Pakistan. In India, this number is more than 3700. According to World Health Organization standards, if a patient is found after doing 20 tests, then only corona can be considered under control, but every eighth person in Pakistan is corona infected.
Despite this, to reduce these figures, Pakistan has now gathered the praise of the World Health Organization by telling the matter under its control. On the other hand, according to the Ministry of Health, 539 new cases of corona were reported in Pakistan on Monday.
With this, the number of infected in the country has increased to 3,02,020. So far 6,383 have died in Pakistan and 551 patients are in critical condition.
