SAMAA Digital has represented the country's daily new cases, deaths and recoveries up till September 11 on this graph. According to the data collected, Pakistan appeared to pass the coronavirus peak in mid-June.
Fewer cases have been reported on a daily basis since August started. Infectious disease experts say a second wave is unlikely. They have attributed the flattening of the curve to a combination of successful targeted lockdowns by the government and pre-existing immunity in the population. There might, however, be small spikes in cases every now and then.
On Thursday, the World Health Organisation listed Pakistan among seven countries whose preparation and response to COVID-19 offers lessons for the rest of the world. The government of Pakistan has also been reassuring people that a coronavirus vaccine will be here soon.
