Data shows ‘lowest jobless rate’ in Pakistan



Prime Minister Imran Khan took to Twitter on Wednesday to congratulate his government for effectively handling the Covid-19 pandemic.

“I want to congratulate my govt for the way we handled the Covid pandemic – better than all the countries in South Asia,” Prime Minister Khan tweeted. He shared the World Bank’s data that showed Pakistan with the “lowest unemployment rate” among other South Asian states during the period of 2020 to 2022.

Earlier today, National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) head Asad Umar said Pakistan reported zero Covid death for the first time in the past two years.

“Alhamdulillah no Covid related deaths reported in the country in the last 24 hours. This is the first time in 2 years that this has happened,” he tweeted.—INP
