Although there is no exact vaccination to combat the coronavirus as yet, chances are high that a patient might recover or get cured within 15 to 20 days of the contagious disease.
This was informed during a seminar that was headed by Professor Dr Abid Azhar of the Karachi University, he is also the Director-General of Dr AQ Khan Institute of Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering at KU.
So far 19 Pakistanis have been tested positive for the COVID-19 with 15 of them belonging to Sindh, 3 to Gilgit Baltistan and 1 to Balochistan. One patient has already recovered fully and was discharged from the hospital in Karachi last week.
He compared the mortality rate of the COVID-19 and other diseases and disasters that have occurred in the past.

He further added that more than 115,000 people across the globe have been affected with the coronavirus while more than 4,000 people have died. But, plague, influenza, diarrhoea and measles have killed between 300 to 500 million people, whereas 30 million people die on a yearly basis owing to the various other diseases.
He also said that comparatively, Pakistan has got a lesser count of affected patients, so there is no reason for panic.
There are increasing fears in Pakistan, as it is sandwiched between China and Iran which are the hotspots of the disease, about how Pakistan would deal with the outbreak.
