Meanwhile, the number of known active cases of COVID-19 in the country is 12,225 and, so far, 79,732 samples have been tested, according to data by the Ministry.

Bamiyan province led with 20 positive cases followed by Herat with 18 and Kabul with 14 COVID-19 cases.

The recoveries were reported in Kabul (63) and Kandahar (18).

Rashid said the government has been unable to manage the coronavirus in the country and has failed to implement prevention programs.
