Decline in COVID-19 cases due to 60% reduction in positivity: Asad July 16, 2020

ISLAMABAD-Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar says there has been decline in coronavirus cases in the country primarily due to a nearly sixty percent reduction in positivity.

In a tweet, he said some people are saying that cases are down only due to testing reduction.

The Minister explained that if positivity rate had been over 22 percent, which was in mid-June, the 24,262 tests done yesterday would have resulted in 5,500 cases, but the actual number of cases yesterday was 2,145.
