(Karachi) Balochistan Government Spokesperson Liaquat Shahwani has blamed men for the rise in coronavirus infection rate.

Addressing a media briefing on Friday, he said that the percentage of women contracting Covid-19 has increased from 21 percent to 24 percent.

Highlighting the facts, the minister said that about 7 percent patients in Balochistan consists of children, while the most people infected with the disease are between 21 to 40 years.
