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.

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.
