Karachi’s Positivity Rate Has Increased Tremendously Amid The Recent Covid-19 Surge
In Pakistan, we have been seeing more and more COVID-19 cases amid the current COVID surge. Karachi has one of the highest rates followed by Muzaffarabad.
The Covid 19 positive rate in the metropolitan metropolis was 22.65 per cent over the past 24 hours, according to statistics supplied by the National Institute of Health (NIH). Muzaffarabad placed second with a positivity percentage of 6.25 per cent, closely followed by Nowshera with a positivity score of 5 per cent.
Interestingly, the positive rate was zero per cent in some places, including Quetta, Diamer, Gilgit, Skardu, Bannu, Swabi, Swat, Bahawalpur, Gujranwala, Gujrat, Jhelum, and Multan.
The NIH also said that 13,412 Covid-19 specimens were tested in the past 24 hours, with 382 coming back positive, down from 406 the day before. The national positivity rate was 2.85 per cent.

The NIH’s suggestion comes only one day after the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) declared wearing face masks on domestic flights obligatory with immediate effect.
After a slight change in Covid-19 cases in some cities, the NCOC has recommended mask-wearing on all domestic flights, railways, and public transport within the country is mandatory. So all citizens are requested to wear a face mask during travel. 😷

The CAA urged all parties involved to ensure that the new order was followed but noted that the existing Covid-19 principles on domestic aviation travel remained unaltered.
Dr Sharmeen Ashraf Qureshi said that despite the high infectivity of the new variants and the rapid increase in Covid-19 cases, particularly in Karachi and Hyderabad, the turnover for booster shots was low. She said that all designated vaccination centres were active in the province and that people could get free booster shots.
