5 new COVID-19 cases reported

The total numbers of infected reached 21 in Afghanistan

The number of novel coronavirus cases has risen to 21 in Afghanistan after five new cases were recorded, a spokesman of Ministry of Public Health said Monday.

"Five more cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in eastern Logar, western Herat and Badghis provinces," spokesman Wahid Mayar tweeted.    
Most of the previously confirmed cases were imported as the patients had returned from Iran.
It was not immediately known whether the five new cases were imported or locally infected.
A total of 263 COVID-19 suspected cases have been tested in the Afghanistan's national laboratories since mid February and one suspected case is still under investigation, according to Mayar.
