The sixth case of coronavirus in Pakistan was reported in Karachi on Thursday, the Sindh and federal governments confirmed.

In a meeting, Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah was told that the patient is a resident of Karachi’s District East and has a history of visiting Iran.

According to a health department official, the patient had returned from Iran on February 25 and was being monitored by doctors.

Dr Zafar Mirza, Prime Minister Imran Khan’s special assistant on health, confirmed the new coronavirus case in Sindh. “The patient is in clinically stable condition in Sindh and is being well taken care of,” he said in a tweet.

In Sindh alone, three cases of coronavirus have been confirmed and all of them had recently returned from Iran.

The meeting was also attended by the federal government officials. CM Shah told the authorities that his government has traced the pilgrims who had recently returned to Sindh from Iran through district committees headed by deputy commissioners.

He requested the federal government to share the province-wise details of the pilgrims who have been placed in quarantine at Taftan and Chaman borders so that his government could take necessary measures.
