ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to Prime Minister on National Health Services, Regulations and Coordination Dr Faisal Sultan on Saturday said that the national Covid-19 positivity ratio continued to fall steadily and the average stands at less than 4 percent.

"I’m pleased to share that the 3rd wave has gone down steadily," Dr Faisal said while sharing updates on disease spread, vaccination and fake news in a video statement.

This is evidence that the government’s lockdown and enforcement of SOPs, along with greater vaccine uptake and administration has had an impact on the spread of the disease.

"Our fellow countrymen in Sindh, however, are under pressure as we had expected as the 3rd wave in Sindh began a bit later than it did in the rest of the federating units."

He said that positivity ratio in Sindh hovered between 6% and 7%.

He said that the government conducted 47,000 to 55,000 tests per day this week.

Dr Faisal said "We are grateful to all citizens for their cooperation regarding implementation of SOPs but the fight against Covid is not over yet."

He said that the government is regularly monitoring compliance across all sectors in all federating units. The NCOC is deeply concerned and has alerted all industries that compliance is not up to the mark. He said that the national compliance of SOPs stands at 46% which is the average across all provinces and sectors.

He said that the SOPs compliance ratio of major sectors was as transport 40%, businesses 40.28%, industry 38%, Mosques and Imambargahs 41%, airport, bus stands, railway stations 50%, public places 42% and hospitals 70%.

He said that the vaccination drive is continuing in full swing and almost 2.2 million people have been fully vaccinated as of 4th of June.

He added almost 3.7 million people have received at least one dose as of 4th of June. In total, almost eight million doses have been administered.

This means that Pakistan is among the world’s top 30 countries in the world in terms of doses administered as the government has administered more vaccine doses than 165 countries.

Dr Faisal said that walk-in vaccination was opened for above 30 years of age on May 29. He added all 30 plus people should send CNIC to 1166 to register and visit any vaccination centre and get vaccinated. He said that the registration for people aged 18 years and above was opened on the 27th of May and scheduled vaccine administration was started from 3rd of June.
