KABUL (SW) – Out of 19 samples taken from suspected coronavirus patients only one proved positive, the Ministry of Public Health said on Sunday.
Officials at the ministry said the relatively lower number of people visiting hospitals during Eid is the main reason for the decline in new coronavirus cases.
