At least 30 people have tested positive for Covid-19 in a Larkana neighbourhood, which saw mysterious death of eight people of a family in 10 days.

According to a district health officer (DHO), family members and relatives of the deceased have tested positive for coronavirus.

“We took 105 samples from the area and 75 people have tested negative,” the health official said, adding that the virus-infected people have been directed to self-isolate themselves at their homes.

It is pertinent to mention here that two women of the same family died in Larkana on Tuesday, raising the death toll in the Khichi neighbourhood to eight.
