Islamabad: Violation of  standard operating procedures (SOPs) during Eidul Azha has now started to show the dismal outcome as Pakistan is reporting 11.88 percent positivity ratio, media reports said on Tuesday.

The number of daily cases, which stood at 2,500 before Eidul Azha, reached 3,752, taking the number of active cases to 57,799. Karachi reported the highest positivity ratio of 24.82pc, followed by 19.76pc in Muzaffarabad and 18.59pc in Rawalpindi, reports Dawn News.

According to data released by the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC), 32 deaths and 3,752 cases were reported on Monday. On May 21 this year, 4,007 cases were reported. The number of hospitalised patients, which was around 2,000 in May, reached 3,045 across the country, the Pakistani news paper reported.

Pakistan Peoples Party’s parliamentary leader in the Senate Sherry Rehman has warned countrymen that violation of SOPs and slow pace of testing and vaccination may lead to a disaster.

"Pak becomes the 30th country in the world to mark a million COVID-19 cases.Death toll surges past 23,000. Less than 7m people have been fully vaccinated. Only 44k tests conducted in last 24 hours. If SOP compliance and testing remains low, we r heading towards a COVID disaster," she tweeted.
