Pakistan, like most South Asian countries, has a poor public medical care system ill-equipped to deal with any large scale health emergency such as coronavirus. The total number of coronavirus cases in Pakistan has drastically increased over the weekend with the country reporting 193 confirmed cases on Tuesday.
Globally, 158 countries have been affected, more than 7,000 people have died and more than 184,000 infected by the disease called 'COVID-19' as it spreads rapidly to new territories. The epicentre of the outbreak has now shifted to Europe, which is recording a rapid rise in new cases every day.
