KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Ministry of Public Healthinfo-icon (MoPH) on Tuesday said it never hid real number of coronavirus patients and shared each case with media so far.

MoPH spokesman Wahidullah Mayar told media persons at the Government Media and Information Center (GMIC) here that 174 positive cases of coronavirus have been registered as of yesterday and the number had been also shared with media outlets already.

He said in 60 tests, four were positive -- two from Kandahar and one each from Daikundi and Nimroz provinces. At least 29 new positive cases have been detected in Herat, Kandahar, Daikundi and Nimroz provinces, taking Afghanistaninfo-icon’s tally to 174.

He said the ministry never hid the real number of COVID-19 case in the country.

He said efforts were underway to address shortage and lack of some medical and other equipment of doctors in western Herat province and to provide two more artificial ventilation systems within next two weeks.

He said the Herat public health department could resolve shortages of face masks from their budget in this regard.
