Islamabad’s biggest public sector hospital, the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) has reached its maximum capacity to handle coronavirus patients.

In the wake of the growing number of patients, the hospital administration has asked the authorities concerned to make alternate arrangements on the premises at the earliest.

Pakistan has reported 157 deaths due to COVID-19 making it the country’s highest death toll since the coronavirus pandemic began last year in Feb. Pakistan had recorded 153 deaths in June.

On the other hand, Pakistan’s national positivity ratio shot up to 11.27 per cent as it recorded 5,908 cases in the past 24 hours, said the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) in its daily statement.
