Pakistan: 10 million people have been vaccinated against the "Corona" virus so far

 The Pakistani Minister of Planning, Development and Special Initiatives, Asad Omar, said that the country's vaccination campaign against the "Corona" virus has achieved a remarkable achievement so far, as 10 million people have been vaccinated with the vaccine against "Corona" out of the total population eligible to receive the vaccine.

The minister pointed out that the government is seeking to vaccinate 70 million people by the end of this year, pointing to the high index of registration for obtaining vaccination, as about 350 thousand people are registered daily, while more than 300 thousand people are vaccinated daily with the first dose.

The Pakistani Minister of Planning said that there is still a need to further strengthen the state's efforts in increasing the rate of vaccinations per day, noting that the decisions to lift restrictions on different sectors were subject to the pace of the national vaccination campaign, as the increase in vaccination will help the rapid recovery of all closed sectors.

Omar explained that many sectors of the national economy were bearing the burden of closures due to the spread of the “Corona” virus and facing serious effects due to the continuous closure, saying: “We must protect the livelihoods of citizens facing stress and the risk of unemployment due to Corona, as well as ensuring health security from the epidemic.”

Pakistan recorded 1,118 new cases of the "Corona" virus during the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of cases of the virus to 939,131 cases.
