The World Health Organisation (WHO) on Sunday congratulated Pakistan on vaccinating 100 million citizens against COVID-19.

“Heartiest Congratulations to Pakistan,” the WHO wrote on Twitter.
“The WHO applauds Govt of Pakistan for having over 100 million individuals fully vaccinated against COVID-19 virus.”

“This indicates the tremendous efforts made by the Government of Pakistan in ensuring that everyone across the country has access to COVID-19 vaccination,” the tweet said.

Earlier in the day, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on National Health Services Faisal Sultan has also announced the news on the microblogging platform.

The COVID-19 positivity rate in Pakistan dropped to 2% on March 6, the lowest level in the last two months as per data issued by the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) Sunday morning.

The last time the positivity ratio dropped this low was on January 5 when the country reported a 1.8% positivity rate.

The latest stats show that Pakistan logged only 755 new cases of coronavirus, pushing the overall case count to 1,514,258 in a single day.

The national COVID-19 body said that the new infections were detected when it conducted 37,661 diagnostic tests countrywide during the last 24 hours.

Meanwhile, the country’s daily COVID-19 death toll fell below 10 once again as only seven people succumbed to the virus overnight, pushing the total number of deaths to 30,265.

Moreover, the active case count after the recent deaths and 886 recoveries further diminished to 29,611.
