Coronavirus cases have dropped considerably in Pakistan in recent months, prompting the government to completely lift a longstanding lockdown. The number of cases dropped from nearly 7,000 per day to about 400, with daily deaths hovering in the single digits.

However, additional cases doubled over the past two weeks after schools reopened last month, forcing the government to reimpose the lockdown in several parts of Karachi, and Lahore.
