The main purpose of this letter is to raise concerns about the imminent spike in Covid-19 infection cases in Pakistan during the upcoming event of Eid Ul Adha, 2020, due to mass gathering of people in the cattle markets, especially from asymptomatic coronavirus carriers. As Pakistan is already facing insur¬mountable difficulties in managing Covid-19 due to its limited healthcare infrastructure, a more severe coronavirus-19 outbreak is expected in the post-Eid Ul Adha days, especially in big cities like Lahore, Karachi and Islamabad, posing a new challenge for the authorities.
