  • In Afghanistan, the health ministry has warned that difficult days are yet to come in the war-torn country as the number of confirmed cases reached 993, triggered by an increase of infections in the capital Kabul.
    Wahidullah Mayar, spokesman for the ministry of health, warned that the number of coronavirus cases will continue to surge in the country.
    Of the 63 new coronavirus cases reported in the last 24 hours, 31 were recorded in Kabul, Mayar said, which has so far recorded 307.
    Kabul is close to overtake Herat which had up until now been the country’s worst affected city with 332 confirmed coronavirus cases, four recorded in the last 24 hours.
    Herat in under lockdown but experts warn that as streets are packed with vehicles and people walking freely around, fighting the virus will be challenging. The province’s governor had recently warned the public to take the virus serious and said he was “digging graves” in Herat.
    In a bid to contain the spread of the virus, the government has recently extended Kabul’s lockdown for a further three weeks and warned that more severe restrictions on movements might be introduced. The lockdown will also be implemented in provincial districts, and roads that connect Kabul with other provinces will also remain closed.
    Ferozuddin Feroz, the country’s health minister, said that Afghanistan, a country of around 30m, has around 50,000 testing kits “but RNA extraction kits are not enough”. He added that talks are being held with Chinese and Japanese officials about the issue.
    Afghanistan has so far recorded 33 deaths of Covid-19 and 131 recoveries.
