In the United States, more than 100 Pakistanis have died of corona virus in the New York region, where at least 8,000 people have died from the disease. Pakistani embassy spokeswoman Zoobia Masood said some Pakistanis may have died in other states as well.
Pakistani Consul General Ayesha Ali said information from hospitals, funeral directors, and families suggest that more than 100 Pakistanis have died from the novel corona virus in the New York / New Jersey region.
Pakistani embassy spokeswoman Zoobia Masood said some Pakistanis may have died in other states as well. “We are still collecting information on the Pakistani-American community of the effected people within the community,” the spokesman added. Officials believe that if more information is received, the death toll will increase.
The death toll in the United States exceeded that in Spain, with nearly 18,000 deaths from the virus reported on Friday afternoon. Corona virus cases in the United States were over 500,000 on the same day.
