In Pakistan, Covid-19 cases are declining, with 593 new cases recorded on average each day. That’s 10% of the peak, which was the highest daily average observed on June 17.
Since the start of the pandemic, the country has recorded 1,269,234 cases and 28,386 coronavirus-related fatalities.
So far, Pakistan has provided at least 100,741,762 doses of Covid vaccination. Assuming that each individual requires two doses, that would be enough to vaccinate around 23.3 percent of the country’s population.
Pakistan provided an average of 657,185 dosages per day during the last week’s records. At such a rate, it will take an additional 66 days to provide enough dosages to cover another 10% of the population.
