Kabul: Stating that the third wave of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is more dangerous then the first and the second wave, the acting minister of public health on Wednesday said that people need to follow health guidelines strictly.
Vahid Majrooh, the Acting Minister of Public Health, who was at a ceremony to introduce the COVID-19 vaccine to religious scholars, said, “If people ignore health advice (washing hands frequently, wearing a mask and keeping a distance), Afghanistan, like India, could face a COVID-19 crisis. If the whole society is reckless and only the health sector and health personnel worke tirelessly, we will not be able to fight it.”
“We are facing another unequal war in the third wave of the coronavirus. We need everyone to fight it together,” he added.
On Wednesday, total number of cases stood at 59,576, while the number of reported deaths is 2,618 and the total number of recoveries is 52,974.
