India Shifts Diplomats in Herat, Jalalabad to Kabul as Covid-19 Cases Rise in Afghanistan

The Indian staff at the two consulates in Herat and Jalalabad were brought to Kabul as part of precautionary measures following the swelling number of coronavirus cases in Afghanistan, media reported.

“Better facilities in Kabul is also another reason for shifting the diplomats,” it said.

This comes as earlier this week, four Servicemembers of NATO in Afghanistan tested positive for the coronavirus.
