Experts say Pakistan may witness a further rise in Covid-19 cases.

Pakistan has reported 107 more Covid-19 deaths and 6,397 new cases, the highest single-day increase.

It brought Pakistan's tally to 2,463 deaths among 125,933 confirmed cases.

The government said Friday that 40,247 patients have recovered.

Experts say Pakistan may witness a further rise in Covid-19 cases. They say the disease has spread across the country since last month when Prime Minister Imran Khan eased lockdown, saying he was doing it to save the ailing economy and people from hunger and poverty.

Pakistan's economy will contract in the fiscal year ending June 30, for the first time in 68 years as a result of the global pandemic.
