Taliban hope for Russian help in fight against covid

“Now many countries, including Russia, provide humanitarian aid to Afghanistan, & nbsp; & mdash; Khazhir stressed. & mdash; & nbsp; Of course, we & nbsp; expect assistance from & nbsp; Russia in & nbsp; many areas, especially in the & nbsp; health sector, and & nbsp; assistance in & nbsp; fight against & nbsp; coronavirus & raquo ;.

According to & nbsp; , which Afghanistan faced in & nbsp; the current period of the spread of the coronavirus, there was a lack of funding, since foreign organizations actually stopped providing support, and & nbsp; the country “ does not & nbsp; have sufficient budget and & nbsp; equipment to & nbsp; self-fight against & nbsp; pandemic & raquo;.

The situation in the & nbsp; health sector in & nbsp; Afghanistan remains extremely difficult due to & nbsp; lack of necessary medicines, and & nbsp; also lack of specialists. According to & nbsp; the latest WHO data, in a & nbsp; country with & nbsp; population of about & nbsp; 39 & nbsp; more than 157 thousand cases of COVID-19 have been identified, 7 & nbsp; 317 infected have died. However, monitoring of the situation around the & nbsp; pandemic in the & nbsp; country is irregular, and & nbsp; in some regions is completely absent.
