The alarming rate of the spread and severity of COVID-19 outbreak has raised deep concerns over the world. 1,274,923 people have been infected globally; more than 69,000 have died and 260,484 have recovered so far. As the number of infected countries and persons, and the death toll rises, there is growing panic among nations across the globe.

The aim of this presentation is to summarize any noteworthy changes in public opinion, attitudes and behavior since the outbreak in Pakistan.
