The first victim was a 50-year-old man who recently returned to Mardan after performing the Umrah pilgrimage in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. The second victim was a 36-year-old man from KP’s Hangu district, who passed away at a hospital in Peshawar.

In a tweet, Pakistan’s State Minister for Health Zafar Mirza said the man “developed fever, cough, and breathing difficulty” after coming to Pakistan and tested positive for COVID-19.

The number of coronavirus cases in Pakistan soared to 304, with 208 in the southern Sindh province alone. Most of the new cases had recently returned from Iran, which has the highest number of cases and deaths after China and Italy.

Earlier, Pakistan PM Imran Khan warned of a possible spread of the virus in the country, if people did not “act responsibly”. “The virus will spread in the country as the countries with better facilities than us could not contain it. But there is no need to panic. Together we will face and live up to this challenge”, Khan said.
