Ministry of Public Health spokesperson Akmal Samsor said that the number of patients with Coronavirus have decreased in recent weeks.
During a conference on Monday, Samsor urged the people who had symptoms of COVID-19 to get tested so they can control the spread of the virus within the community.
Samsor added that the MoPH’s surveillance teams tracked people who had been in contact with infected patients, and “so far, more than 23,000 people have been tracked, of which 4,492 have tested positive,” he added.
The MoPH said that in the past few weeks, the trend of COVID-19 transmission in Herat, Badghis and Bamyan provinces, had been higher than in other places.
The spokesperson urged the residents to follow the health instructions, especially wearing masks, sanitizing and maintaining social distancing, to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.
Afghanistan has recorded 35,503 cases of COVID-19 so far, of which 1,183 have died and 23,663 have recovered.
