ISLAMABAD:The lowest number of deaths and cases of coronavirus infections was reported on Tuesday in the country for over eight months.

According to the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC), 27 deaths and 663 cases of Covid-19 were reported in a single day. On October 20 last year, 660 cases were reported.

The number of active cases, which had topped 90,000 in April, stood at 33,452 as of June 22, while 271 ventilators were in use across the country.

Meanwhile, several people complained of errors in vaccination data and expressed fears this might become a problem for them in future.

However, an official of the Ministry of National Health Services (NHS) claimed that over 13 million doses had been administered and only a few hundred persons faced problems regarding data entry.

He urged them to contact the vaccination centre or the helpline to get their issue resolved. A man told media that he had received the first dose of Sinovac on May 20 and waited for four weeks to getthe second dose.

`As vaccine was not available across the country, I waited for a while. Later, I checked my status by sending SMS to 1166, but was shocked to see that according to it I got my second dose on June 17,` he said.

Another man lodged a complaint with the Ministry of NHS that the vaccination certificate downloaded from the official website showed that he got his second shot well before the first one.
