JALALABAD (Pajhwok): At least 73 new Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) cases have been detected in eastern Nangarhar province, an official said on Monday.

Speaking at a gathering on eve of International AIDS Day, Dr. Najib Kamawal said of the 73 patients, nine had died while 36 others were under medical treatment.

The tragic aspect of the issue, he said, was that most of the patients had gone abroad or travelled to other provinces of the country.

Muhammad Hanif Gardiwal, the deputy governor, expressed shock over the increase in the number of AIDS patients.

He demanded of the relevant departments to make concerted efforts to control the deadly disease before it slipped out of control.
