On the other hand, the third wave of novel coronavirus infection in Pakistan, especially in the province of Punjab has been the worst-hit. The last couple of weeks have seen the COVID cases skyrocket in several major districts of Punjab. The province of Punjab, alone, accounts for almost 50 percent of the active coronavirus cases currently present in Pakistan.
