COVID-19: Iconic palace turned into isolation facility in Kabul

Darulaman

KABUL: Afghanistan on Saturday turned the iconic 19th-century Darul Aman palace in Kabul into an isolation facility with 200 beds for coronavirus patients.

According to Health Minister Ferozuddin Feroz, the center will be set up to treat bedridden patients with coronavirus symptoms.

“The government has begun efforts to establish isolation centers with a 10,000-bed capacity for COVID-19 patients across the capital Kabul and aims to set up 100,000 beds in the country,” he said.

According to him, the center will not be equipped as a hospital, but as a “sanatorium” where health workers would serve coronavirus patients in isolation. He acknowledged that there is little capacity in the country in terms of staff and resources to tackle the pandemic.

The iconic palace got destroyed during the civil war in the 1990s, and was last year renovated in line with 100th Independence Day.
