PESHAWAR: Twenty three more people lost lives to coronavirus in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on Monday. The fresh fatalities took the toll to 610, whereas 519 people tested positive for the viral infection that brought the total number of positive cases to 14,006.
Of 23 deaths, four were reported from Peshawar, two each from Malakand and Mansehra, and one each from Mardan, Dir Lower, Abbottabad and Haripur. With four more fatalities, the number of deaths caused by Covid-19 reached 311 in Peshawar.
This is, however, the official data, as it is believed that a large number of people had died of the viral infection but since they were not brought to the hospitals, therefore they were not counted.
