Health experts in Pakistan have puzzled experts with a reduction in the incidence of the virus


Since the initial increase, the number of infections has dropped in recent weeks, with coyote-19 deaths hovering at every single digit, while neighboring India has seen hundreds of deaths.

Pakistan has a long history of failing to control a number of infectious diseases such as polio, tuberculosis and hepatitis, while successive governments have funded its healthcare sector for decades.

In addition, many Pakistanis live in crowded, multi-generational houses or apartment buildings in favor of hasty transmission of the virus.

"No one is able to explain this shortcoming ... we have no concrete explanation," said Dr Salman Haseeb of Services Hospital in the eastern city of Lahore. "

Pakistanis have shown their ability to control the epidemic in their country. Numerous hypotheses have been proposed’ which give credence to the invincible claims of natural immunity to everything from the young population and the hot and humid climate.

He is only 22 years old and the coronavirus is known’ to infect older people disproportionately with health-related complications.

In comparison, more than 35,000 deaths were recorded’ in Italy at the age of 46.5 years, while the official death toll in Pakistan is about 6,300.

To date, the South Asian country has confirmed more than 295,000 infections and is currently recording a few hundred new cases.

Observers say the actual number of infections is much higher than just a limited number of tests. A testing exercise in Lahore said that about 7% of the city's population is at risk of contracting the virus.

But conclusive evidence from hospitals across Pakistan supports the downward trend.

Initially, when healthcare facilities have changed, doctors across Pakistan told AFP that they no longer see the corona virus rush in emergency services.

"Regardless of the cause, the good thing is that the first wave of the virus in Pakistan is almost gone," said Dr. Khizr Hayat of Nishtar Hospital in the central city of Multan.

"The situation is under control now and the number of corona virus cases is declining. The wards are getting empty. It is difficult to know why."

A flat curve is more interesting to consider how the coronavirus infected India, with a median age of 26 years and a similar population in crowded cities.

Over the weekend, India set a new world record for the highest number of daily infections, with 78,761 new infections recorded in 24 hours, while Delhi is testing at a much higher rate than Islamabad.

India has also reported more than 64,000 deaths - the third highest in the world after the United States and Brazil.

Since filing its first lawsuit in late February, Pakistan has responded to the epidemic, with loose locks that later turned, while mobs abandoned social distance guidelines and even in markets and mosques. Started to go

Nevertheless, Prime Minister Imran Khan's government has accelerated this progress, crediting itself with "smart" lockdown policies and other measures, although they were, often not’ implemented.

Last month, after several weeks of new cases, Pakistani authorities lifted most of the country's corona virus restrictions.

Restaurants and parks have reopened as people return to the theaters, malls, and public transport closer to the crowds. Schools and universities are set to reopen in late September.

Masks have become increasingly rare, raising expert warnings to be wary of a second wave of experts.

Hassan Waseem, a microbiologist based in Pakistan, warned, "People think we've defeated Covid-19, but I believe there is still a possibility of another wave."

However, other doctors suspect an epidemic is on the rise in the country.

"I would hesitate to say that there will be no second wave in Pakistan. Most urban centers in Pakistan, such as Lahore and Karachi, are already in the worst case scenario for the coronavirus." And infectious diseases in the Chughtai lab.
