News of former captain baseless, no truth in them, Shahid Afridi resting at home in Quarantine after affecting Coronavirus
News of former Pakistan cricket team captain and prominent all-rounder Shahid Afridi’s departure for Vanity Fair started circulating on social media. When contacted, 40-year-old Shahid Afridi’s spokesman Nasrullah said that the news about Shahid Khan Afridi was baseless and there was no truth in it. Shahid Afridi was resting at home in Quarantine after contracting the coronavirus.
It may be recalled that on June 13, Shahid Afridi had confirmed on social media that he was infected with the Coronavirus. During the lockdown in Pakistan, Shahid Afridi was distributing rations to the needy in different poor cities of the country. It should be noted that the deadly novel coronavirus, which has infected more than 8.1 million people worldwide and caused more than 440,000 deaths, has infected 154,760 people in the country and killed 2,975.
As of this morning (June 17), 2,807 new cases of the epidemic and 27 deaths have been reported in the country, however, the number of recoveries in the country has also increased and today another 2,047 people have fully recovered from the virus. The spread of the epidemic in the country is increasing with each passing day and the federal minister has expressed concern that the number of cases could reach 300,000 by the end of this month and 10 to 12 million by the end of July.
To reduce the spread of the virus and keep the economy afloat, the government has decided to adopt a smart lockdown policy, which will close hotspots for the virus or the most affected areas. If we look at the situation in the country since the spread of the coronavirus, it has changed over time, but compared to the first two months, the months of May and June are describing a very worrying situation.
The first case of coronavirus was reported in the country on February 26, and as of March 31, the number of confirmed cases in the country was about 2,000, while after the first death on March 18, the number was 26 by the end of March. In April, the number of cases started increasing and by the 30th of this month, the number of certified cases in the country had crossed 16,000 while the death toll had reached 385. However, the situation changed drastically in May, with more than 54,000 cases and more than 1,100 deaths in one month, bringing the total to 71,000 and the death toll to more than 1,500. This month marks the most alarming situation since June-May, with more than 80,000 cases and more than 1,300 deaths reported in its 16 days. Today, on the 17th of May, new cases and deaths also came to light.
