Pakistan’s Death Toll Due to COVID-19 Exceeds 4,000

Pakistan conducted just 21,033 tests for the novel coronavirus in the 24 hours preceding Saturday morning—it’s lowest testing since June 3 for a third consecutive day—against 3,138 new infections, a positivity ratio of 14.9 percent.
 
Nationwide, daily spikes in confirmed cases of COVID-19 have not dropped below 3,000 since May 31. However, medical experts warn that the country’s positivity ratio still remains too high According to the World Health Organization, any country with a positivity ratio over 5 percent is likely only testing the most symptomatic patients and ignoring asymptomatic infections, which can significantly boost the spread of the virus.
