KABUL (SW) – The government has earmarked $ 25 million to help stop the spread of coronavirus in the country.

Spokesman for the health ministry, Tawhid Shakohmand told Salam Watandar this additional fund has been released by the finance ministry.

He also confirmed that at least four more suspected victims of coronavirus have arrived in Badakhshan province, and are under observation.

Sardar Khan Moosazay, head of the Jamhoriat Hospital in Kabul, said in this connection that public awareness plays pivotal role in stopping the virus from spreading. He feared that without a robust public awareness campaign, combating the virus would become difficult.

This comes as multiple suspected cases of coronavirus have been reported in Herat, Ghor, Farah and Helmand provinces.
