Sindh government spokesperson Murtaza Wahab refutes National Command and Operation Centre’s (NCOC) statistics, says in the last 48 hours, the coronavirus positivity ratio has remained at 8.7% approximately in District Hyderabad.

Murtaza Wahab in a video message shared on Twitter, on Monday, said that according to official data of the past few days, the positivity rate in the Hyderabad district stood at 8.7pc.

The statement comes after the NCOC, in a statement, said that the Covid-19 positivity ratio was rapidly growing in major cities, with the rate exceeding 15pc in at least three cities across the country.

 Wahab said in a video message, without naming the NCOC, said, “I saw these updates on TV. I investigated and checked this and I want to tell you that to say that positivity ratio in Hyderabad district is 15pc is, in my opinion, is wrong. Situation is not like that”.
