ISLAMABAD : Special Assistant to the Prime Minister (SAPM) on National Health Services Dr Zafar Mirza said that Pakistan recorded 20 Covid-19 deaths in the past 24 hours – the lowest number of fatalities in the last three months. “Today, Alhamdolilah, we have the lowest number of deaths in Pakistan due to COVID-19 in last 3 months. We had a peak of 153 deaths on 20 June and in last 24 hours we had 20,” he said in a Tweet. He further stated that it was a “87% reduction” in COVID-19 related deaths, but warned that there was no room for “complacency”. “This is a 87% reduction in COVID-19 related deaths. Yet no place for any complacency!”, he added. Dr Zafar Mirza had earlier advised COVID-19 sufferers to pay special attention to their nutrients and daily consumption of water. Dr Zafar Mirza, while talking to a private television channel, said that 237,000 people have recovered from the virus in Pakistan. Elaborating his own experience after being tested positive, Dr Zafar Mirza said that he has isolated himself over the advice of doctors. “People should focus on the quality of nutrients instead of quantity. I am also a doctor but I hadn’t taken any medicine without consulting other doctors.” The special assistant on health warned that a coronavirus patient recovered from the virus could get infected again. Earlier, Prime Minister Imran Khan’s focal person on COVID-19 Dr Faisal Sultan had said that the current situation is much better than what the country was facing three months back and appreciated the federal agencies and provincial governments for their collaborative efforts to fight the spread of the contagious disease in the country. “Ask any hospital or medical facility. Coronavirus cases have declined drastically,” said Dr Faisal.
