ISLAMABAD: Federal Planning Minister and the head of the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) Asad Umar took to Twitter to announce on Tuesday that 100 million people had received at least one dose with around 75mn people fully vaccinated against the virus.
He was, however, quick to realise that more work was needed to be done.
