MoPH Records 484 new COVID-19 Cases

Kabul: The Ministry of Publich Health (MoPH) on Sunday said that it has recorded 484 new positive cases of the coronavirus (COVID-19) infection and 37 deaths in the past 24 hours.

The total number of cases now stand at 147,985, while the death toll is 6,774.

This comes even as Afghanistan’s acting Public Health Minister Wahid Majroh has described China as a major partner in his country’s fight against COVID-19, and thanked Beijing for its various support. “China has been one of our most effective partners when especially it comes to health service delivery,” Majroh told Xinhua in an interview. “The cooperation goes beyond COVID-19 — during the pandemic, China supported us in different aspects.”

“On the first days of the fight against COVID-19, China provided us ventilators, face masks and sanitizers, even during the days when they themselves were in need of these resources,” Majroh said.

“We thank China for its support, which continued with the donation of vaccines,” which is of great help for Afghanistan’s vaccination campaign and is also a sign of friendship between the two countries, the minister said.
