A Covid-19 patient has his back rubbed by his son inside the Intensive Care Unit at the Afghan Japan Communicable Diseases Hospital, Kabul's primary facility for the treatment of Covid-19. At the time this photo was taken, an official count of 1,200 deaths had been recorded by the Ministry of Public Health, though that figure is assumed to be far lower that the reality. The ministry released the findings of a survey the same week which indicated more than one third of Afghans had likely been infected with the disease and more than 50 percent of Kabul residents.

KABUL: The Ministry of Public Health on Friday reported 406 new positive cases of COVID-19 out of 2,194 samples tested in the last 24 hours.

The ministry also reported 10 deaths and 103 recoveries from COVID-19 in the same period.

The ministry reported that the cumulative total of known COVID-19 cases is 65,486, the total number of reported deaths is 2,792, and the total number of recoveries is 55,790.

So far, 442,328 samples have been tested in government centers and there are 6,904 known active COVID-19 cases in the country, data by the ministry indicates.
