Dr Faisal Sultan, the focal person on coronavirus for Prime Minister Imran Khan, earlier attributed the downward trend of COVID-19 cases in the country to the daily drop in the number of tests being conducted in the country.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) had recommended Pakistan increase daily testing to above 50,000, but after peaking at 31,000 tests exactly a month ago, the South Asian nation tested less than 20,000 people in July.
