In the past 24 hours, 866 new Coronavirus cases – the highest in a single-day since the outbreak started – were reported in Afghanistan, said the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) today. This brings the total to 14,525 confirmed cases, with three new deaths and 44 recovered patients over the last 24 hours.
Kabul with 411 cases, and Herat with 177 cases, still led the country’s counts for new infections. The other provinces with positive cases were Balkh (39), Nangarhar (35), Takhar (29), Paktia (28), Parwan (27), Badghis (26), Baghlan (19), Logar (19), Kunduz (16), Kapisa (15) and Ghazni (10), Panjshir (6), Badakhshan (4), Wardak (3) and Faryab (2).
There are 12,973 active cases in the country with 249 people dead and 1,303 people recovered.
According to the MoPH, people are not taking Coronavirus seriously.
Despite their efforts and warning, people have increased movement within major cities, resulting to the spread of the infection. That is the reason why the citizens of Kabul, Nangarhar and Balkh are reportedly seeing larger increases in new Coronavirus cases that before.
