Dramatic drop witnessed in Karachi’s Covid-19 positivity rate

The coronavirus positivity ratio in Karachi has dropped from 25 per cent to 7pc, Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah announced on Monday.

In a conversation with reporters outside an accountability court in Islamabad, Shah said that the credit for this development goes to citizens as they followed SOPs and are getting vaccinated.

“We don’t hide anything from the citizens and every decision taken by the Sindh government is in line with the approach of the National Command and Operation Centre,” Shah was quoted as saying.

The Sindh chief minister pointed out that when Sindh decided to close educational institutions everyone criticised them. “The same restriction has now been imposed by the national forum.”
