Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Health Minister Taimur Khan Jhagra revealed on Wednesday that early testing has shown 39 positive results out of the 46 coronavirus tests conducted in Mardan’s UC Manga.

UC Manga recorded the country’s first coronavirus death last week, with Jhagra adding that none of those tested had yet started showing any symptoms of the virus.

Four of the samples were also rejected, meaning the positive
results outweigh the negative ones by a worrying 39 to three.

A 50-year-old man had died at the DHQ Hospital last Wednesday after arriving in Mardan 10 days before that from Saudi Arabia, leading to the immediate lockdown of the union council.

As of Tuesday night, 990 known coronavirus cases and seven deaths were reported across Pakistan.
