CHARIKARinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Kabulinfo-icon-Parwan highway, linking Kabul with nine provinces, has been closed for traffic in an effort to contain the COVID-19 pandemic, an official said on Tuesday.

Khawaja Mohammad Hanif Sidiqi, the Qarabagh district chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News the highway was shut for all kinds of traffic, except for patients and military personnel, late on Monday.

He said the decision was made by the authorities concerned in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus. The highway has been closed in Mashinab area since Monday evening.
