Watch: Pakistan struggles to counter devastating impact of COVID-19

    Pakistan had made remarkable progress in lifting its people out of poverty over the last 30 years but COVID-19 has dealt a severe blow to the country’s economic progress.

    As explained in the above CNA video the pandemic has reversed all the gains Pakistan has made in poverty eradication efforts.

    An estimated 10 million more people are expected to fall into extreme poverty from the existing 50 million poor people in the country.
