More Than Six Lac People Residing in Lahore Could be Infected with Coronavirus

As of now 80,463 cases have been identified in Pakistan after the governments plan to ease lockdown. Sindh has the most identified cases with 31,086 followed by Punjab with 29,489. Wherein, cases in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have reached 10,897, Islamabad 4470, Gilgit Baltistan 779 and Azad Kashmir 284. Official sources have claimed that 28,923 patients have recovered form the novel coronavirus and death toll has reached 1688.

According to sources, a report has been submitted to the chief minister of Punjab, Sardar Usman Buzdar wherein, it is estimated that 670,000 people could be infected in Lahore only. The report given also contains samples collected from hotspots, residences and offices situated in Lahore.

As per the Technical Working Group who are collecting the samples and making further analysis have reportedly claimed that the city needs to be under complete lockdown to contain the virus or bring the situation under control. They have also observed how quickly the virus has spread. They have further recommended people aged fifty or above who are immunocompromised should be kept under quarantine until further instructions given.

However, since the government has eased the lockdown, people have been out and about their business with zero SOP’s being followed. If the situation remains the same, there are chances every one of us will contract the virus in the coming months. Ensuing the pattern, 4131 cases have been reported in the last 24 hours. The situation is rather gloomy and despondent and the only way to control is by acting responsible.
