Meanwhile in Pakistan, the Covid-19 vaccination drive will gain momentum as it is expected to receive more than 13 million doses by June, top health officials said. The daily vaccinations crossed 100,000 for second consecutive day on April 28 as more and more people visited the hospitals and designated health centres for Covid jabs.
