“health consequences are strongly correlated with our decisions and personal choices”health consequences are strongly correlated with our choices and personal choices.
“In a series of tweets on Monday, the minister said: “As the second wave intensified, in the last week of November, we closed high-risk areas found by our study.
“Hospital admissions peaked in the first week of December. Oxygen/vents patients peaked in the second week. Mortality peaked in the third week and then decreased. Decisions & success are closely correlated.
He said the results showed how the health effects of Covid-19 interacted with personal choices and decisions. “Hence it’s important that we all take responsibility and take precautions. If we do the right things, we shall continue to safeguard lives and livelihoods.”
The catastrophe taking place these days in countries such as the United States and the United Kingdom, where there are more cases and deaths of Covid than at any point in the first wave, illustrates the danger that could face us if we do not continue to do the right things, he said, with both the state and people playing their part.
The warning from the minister comes a day after the 500,000 mark was crossed by the country’s tally of incidents. So far, 504,293 cases and 10,676 deaths have been recorded in Pakistan; 458,371 people have recovered from the illness.
