The Ministry of Public Health, in a joint effort with the Ministry of Telecommunications and Information Technology, on Thursday unveiled the "corona.asan.gov.af" software.
The software provides users with information about the coronavirus, including health advice in three languages (English, Dari and Pashto).
“The most important thing that this software will do is that those who have access to the Internet can do an internal evaluation, and because there are questions in this software, they can do an internal evaluation of how close their health is,” said Fahim Hashimi, telecommunication acting minister. (is this english? what does it mean?)

While every day the number of COVID-19 patients increases in Kabul, the Ministry of Public Health says it wants to increase the number of coronavirus testing centers in Kabul from one center to twenty-two in the coming three days.
"This software does not play the role of a laboratory, but it can provide very accurate and reliable guidance to the patients, because it is a disease that has no drug, vaccine or treatment. Therefore, for such a disease, it is necessary to provide credible information to the people so they can evaluate themselves, and show them how to use the information correctly,” Health Minister Ferozuddin Feroz said Thursday.
Meanwhile, a group of young people in Logar province launched a campaign to raise awareness about the spread of the coronavirus in the province.
Over the last 24 hours, 40 positive coronavirus cases have been reported in the country, Health Minister Ferozuddin Feroz said, bringing the total registered number of cases in the country to 484.
