According to the recent report by the Ministry of Public Health (MOPH), 37% of the collected samples in the last 24 hours, tested positive for COVID-19.

A total of 5,044 samples were taken in the past 24 hours from all over Afghanistan, out of which 1,844 cases were identified positive for COVID-19.

The percentage shows that a large number of the Afghan population is infected with the Coronavirus and that of the reports by the Ministry of Public Health does not represent a comprehensive study, seemingly the real number of cases is much higher in Afghanistan.

The report also suggests that 51 people have died in Afghanistan as a result of the Coronavirus in the past 24 hours.
