Earlier on Monday, the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) warned Pakistan about the alarming increase in COVID-19 cases.
WHO had already warned that the number of estimated coronavirus cases in Pakistan can rise to an estimated 200,000 by mid-July if “effective interventions” are not taken.
Pakistan earlier on Saturday began easing the month-long lockdown despite a steady rise in the number of the coronavirus cases.
