Leaders urge reviving spirit of sacrifice as nation celebrates another Eid under Covid’s shadow

As Pakistan celebrates yet another Eid under the shadow of Covid-19 and amid economic challenges, the country’s leaders urged the nation to revive the spirit of sacrifice, help the poor and needy and follow precautionary measures against the coronavirus. Sunday morning marked the beginning of the festival of Eidul Azha — yet another one that is witnessing Covid-19 infections rising — with prayers held at mosques, Edgars and grounds across the country. Pakistan has consistently logged more than 500 daily infections since June 28, and the newly revived NCOC reintroduced masks and social distancing guidelines ahead of Eid. As of Sunday, the country confirmed 502 new cases and one Covid-related fatality, as the positivity ratio was 2.73 per cent. About 145 patients were on critical care.
