These reports were published in a few segments of the media regarding the spike in deaths in Karachi’s different hospitals. Although there is no official confirmation that these deaths were because of the virus, there is a sense of panic in the public who fear a spike in COVID-19 related deaths.

In district Central, 181 dead bodies were brought in the C-1 Area cemetery, four in Haji Morid Goth cemetery, 76 in Yasinabad graveyard, 273 in Sakhi Hassan graveyard, 30 in Al-Noor cemetery, 681 in Mohammed Shah cemetery, 59 in Ghasdar Baba graveyard and 430 in Siddiqabad cemetery were brought in for burial during the 49-day period, according to Karachi Metropolitan Corporation’s (KMC) data, published by the Express Tribune.

None of these deaths were confirmed to be COVID-19 related nor was the real cause revealed. No tests were conducted in any hospitals to assert the fact that these deaths were coronavirus related which is rather sly and leads to doubt on the claims that the deaths were due to the virus.
