The Ministry of Public Health said that the next doses of Covid-19 vaccination will be provided in 17 provinces within 20 days.
A spokesman for the ministry, Sharafat Zaman Amerkhail, said nearly 2.5 million people will receive vaccination in this round.
According to Amerkhail, more 5,000 Covid-19 patients were registered in 2022 but it has dropped by 8 percent in 2023.
The officials of the Afghan-Japan hospital said that from 350 samples, only 9 positives cases were registered in the last month.
“There is a 20-day campaign in 17 provinces of the country. 2.4 million of our countrymen will be provided with vaccination,” said Zalmai Rishteen, head of the Covid-19 hospital.
According to the officials at the Afghan-Japan hospital, nearly 30 patients are under treatment in the hospital.
“When they brought me, I was in an emergency situation and didn’t know where I was. God bless the doctors,” said Fakhruddin, patient.
“They give us injections and monitor us even more than 10 times a night to see our condition,” said Rajab Mohammad, patient.
This comes as doctors called on the people to remain cautious and follow medical recommendations to counter Covid-19.
“In February, we took 160 samples, of which two were positive,” said Zalmai Rahmati, a doctor.
“Covid-19 has lessended. The good news is that those who are older, should get a vaccination,” said Inamullah Rahmati, a doctor.
