After growing concerns about the spread of the coronavirus in Afghanistan, the Chinese embassy in Kabul on Friday told TOLOnews that China is ready to help Aghanistan.
The Chinese Embassy says it is ready to share its experiences with Afghanistan in addition to providing health aid.
The coronavirus first spread in Wuhan, China, and then spread to other countries.
So far, more than 3,000 people in China have lost their lives due to the virus, and more than 80,000 people have been infected, but now China claims to be controlling the spread.
After China, Italy, South Korea and Iran are among the countries with the highest number of deaths and infections.
Afghanistan, which is neighboring Iran, has recorded seven positive cases so far, according to Afghan health officials, who say the cases have come from Iran to Afghanistan.
The spread of the virus in Afghanistan has raised serious concerns.
A number of Kabul residents on Friday launched a volunteer campaign to combat the virus in Kabul.
These volunteers provide public awareness to the people regarding the virus and urge them to follow health guidelines.
Volunteers distribute masks, disinfectants and hygiene leaflets to people.
“We are spraying hotels and restaurants in our area, and most of our focus is on public awareness regarding the virus and preventing the spread of the virus,” said Attaullah, a volunteer.
“The leaflets have information about how to prevent coronavirus and we distribute it to people,” said Mohammad Halim, another volunteer.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the coronavirus a contagious global virus.
The virus has spread to more than a hundred countries around the world and has claimed the lives of more than 5,000 people and infected more than 100,000 others.
No medication has been developed to cure the disease so far, but doctors are advising people to increase their body resistance using Vitamin C and to wash their hands regularly.
“Fifty percent of people do not have access to health services and people are living in poverty,” said Nowroz Haqmal, professor of Medical Sciences in London.
The Afghan government has banned large gatherings and New Year's Eve celebration.
