Islamabad: Pakistan COVID-19 death toll has crossed 8000 mark, media reports said on Monday.

The total number of deaths due to the disease now stands at 8025.

The coronavirus positivity rate in Pakistan climbed to 8.5% on November 29, data issued by the National Command and Operations Centre showed on Monday as reported by Geo News.

A total of 2,839 new COVID-19 cases were recorded in the past 24 hours, raising the total tally to 398,024, reported the Pakistan-based news channel.

As many as 40 deaths were reported on Sunday due to the virus which is believed to have originated from China.

Imran Khan, meanwhile, blamed opposition leaders for the spread of the COVID-19 in the country.

"Problem confronting us in Pak during COVID 19 is of a political leadership that has never gone through any democratic struggle, nor worked with ordinary citizens to understand the problems they confront, nor contributed in any substantive way for betterment of ordinary citizens," he tweeted.
