Pakistan Urges People to Get Vaccinated to Return to a Normal Life.

ISLAMABAD — Pakistan’s government on Thursday issued an appeal, urging people to get vaccinated against coronavirus to return to a normal life.

The request from the minister for planning and development, Asad Umar, comes amid a slight but steady increase in infections and deaths from coronavirus. Although Pakistan is offering free vaccinations, many people have not responded, mainly because of a lack of awareness.

Pakistan has vaccinated about 4.7 million in the country with a population of 220 million. On Thursday, Pakistan reported 4,207 confirmed cases and 131 deaths in the past 24 hours.

On Wednesday, Pakistan eased COVID-19 related restrictions despite warnings from health experts who wanted the government to extend a lockdown lifted last week.

Since then, the country has witnessed a slight increase in confirmed cases and deaths from coronavirus.

Pakistan has reported more than 890,391 confirmed infections and 19,987 confirmed deaths since the start of the pandemic.
