MoPH Says COVID-19 Cases Decreased By 40% As Tally Reaches 33,908

The number of positive coronavirus cases in Afghanistan has fallen by 30 to 40% said Ahmad Jawad Osmani, the acting Minister of Public Health (MoPH), on Thursday.

The MoPH reported 314 new cases of COVID-19 in the last 24 hours, including 20 deaths and 147 recovered cases. The country’ s tally is 33,908 confirmed cases to date with 957 deaths.

Osmani stressed that this was possible due to the help of the public and it took a month and half for the cases to decrease, according to laboratory statistics.

However, although the number of positive COVID-19 cases have decreased, Afghanistan is still in a state of crisis, Osmani warned.

“Once the number of positive confirmations reach less than 5%, we can be in a better position and return to normal life,” he added.

However, observers have noted that the laboratories have been consistently testing fewer samples than the 2,000 a day, the ministry had said they were capable of.

Even on Thursday, they tested 716 samples within 24 hours.

Later, Osmani also said that the ministry had acquired 500 oxygen generators and would hopefully, be able to solve the shortage of oxygen soon.
