Rawalpindi : The assumptions being made at the beginning of August about slowing down the spread of the coronavirus illness, COVID-19 in this region of the country has proved to be a fallacy at least after reporting of confirmed cases of the disease in the last four days from Islamabad Capital Territory and Rawalpindi district.

Data collected by ‘The News’ on Sunday reveals that a male patient in his sixties died of COVID-19 at Corona Management Centre in Rawalpindi Institute of Urology in the last 24 hours taking the death toll from the district to 282. It is important that the virus has already claimed 178 lives in the federal capital.

Another 39 patients have been tested positive for the disease in the last 24 hours from the federal capital taking the tally to 15,901 of which 15,327 have recovered. The number of active cases of the disease was 396 in ICT on Sunday.
