This has prompted serious controversy and criticism around the Punjab government’s data entry system.
Another 15 patients who passed away in the last 24 hours were also added to the updated death toll.
Out of the, previously, unreported deaths 29 occurred in Multan, 42 in Rawalpindi and 145 in Lahore.
At present it is not yet clear who exactly is responsible for the concealment of nearly 300 coronavirus deaths in the province, as the audit report has not named any individuals.
Instead, the report listed a few key reasons why the aforementioned deaths went unreported.
The audit report was jointly conducted by the Primary & Secondary Healthcare Department, the Punjab Healthcare Commission and the coronavirus experts’ advisory group.
