Public Health Minister Ferozuddin Feroz at a press conference in Kabul on Sunday said that out of 97 cases tested in the past 24 hours, 10 were positive.
The coronavirus cases are increasing in Herat, said Feroz: “We urge the government to order that Herat city be locked down."
People must avoid gatherings, the health minister said, adding: “We are suggesting masks only for people who are sick.”
“The people must cooperate. We say not to gather but then we see people together for picnics--at gatherings-- which is a huge problem,” he said, “If the people would cooperate than we would be able to control the virus.”
The 10 new positives cases reported in the past 24 hours:
Herat – 3
Kabul – 2 – (two foreign diplomats)
Zabul – 2
Kandahar – 1
Ghazni – 1
Balkh -- 1
