The Afghan cabinet approved a plan to gradually ease the Kabul lockdown--allowing businesses to open for certain hours, based on health advice--but Pres. Ghani calls for all to stay in their homes during Eid, says the Presidential Palace.
Despite the limited testing capacity, the Public Health Ministry has reported an average of 500 new confirmed cases each day over the past week. The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Afghanistan is nearing 9,000.
A seven-member probe team of lawmakers on Thursday made its findings public about a complex attack on a gathering of Afghan politicians in Kabul in early March.
The team, led by MP Tawfiq Wahdat, is comprised of Arif Rahmani, Abdul Karim Karimi, Mahdi Rasikh, Ghulam Husain Naseri and Zuhra Nawrozi.
