Pakistan Has Avoided the Worst of the Pandemic

Pakistan used to be overloaded with coronavirus patients, but that was gone as soon as it came. Then, hospital admissions fell drastically! Many doctors were initially skeptical, wondering if conspiracy theories about patients being "poisoned" by medics had led to a rise in families "self-treating" at home. But the decrease has been sustained. Now, life in Pakistan is getting largely back to normal, and the last vestiges of partial lockdown restrictions are being lifted. Restaurants have reopened. Only schools and universities, along with marriage halls, remain shut until next month.
