Aid Keeps Afghanistan Afloat Amid COVID-19 Pandemic
Much needed aid kept Afghanistan’s fragile health system afloat in the wake of the crippling coronavirus pandemic amid raging insurgency and lingering political tensions.
As a freight train carrying 500 tons of food aid from neighboring Uzbekistan docked in northern Afghanistan on Friday, official figures on virus patients by the health ministry indicated the pandemic was making inroads in the landlocked country’s capital of Kabul.
Dr. Waheedullah Mayar, an adviser on strategic affairs at the Health Ministry, told Anadolu Agency that COVID-19 has now entered the critical epidemic phase in Kabul by infecting citizens with no track record of travel to epicenters such as Iran, Italy or China.
“We are more vulnerable than many other nations on the planet due to numerous factors such as the socio-economic and political instability and insecurity,” he said.
