Pakistan Recorded 2,756 New Cases, One of the Sharpest Spikes Since the Outbreak Began

November 23, 2020

ISLAMABAD — Pakistan’s government has warned that several “super-spreader” gatherings in the country recently may force it to impose a full lockdown amid a spike in coronavirus cases.

Pakistan recorded 2,756 new cases on Monday, one of the sharpest spikes since the outbreak began.

On Sunday, tens of thousands of supporters of opposition parties gathered in the province of Khyber Pukhtunkhwa, on the border with Afghanistan. Last week, thousands gathered to bury a radical religious cleric in Lahore, the capital of eastern Punjab province.

At both gatherings, masks were worn by only a few people and there was no social distancing, with crowds of mostly men jammed into limited spaces.

Pakistan has recorded nearly 377,000 cases of the virus, including 7,696 deaths.


GENEVA (AP) — The World Health Organization said Friday that COVID-19 no longer qualifies as a global emergency, marking a symbolic end to the devastating coronavirus pandemic that triggered once-unthinkable lockdowns, upended economies and killed millions of people worldwide.
