MoPH Urges Public to Respect COVID-19 Health Guidelines

KABUL - The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) has suggested that the Afghan government ask 50 percent of the government servants to work from home if the second wave of COVID-19 gets serious in the country.
“We need to work on this plan, there is a need for a proper plan to make sure that with the implementation of this plan we can curb the further spread of the virus,” said Masooma Jaffari, a deputy spokeswoman for the Ministry of Public Health.
What do ordinary people say?
“No one respects health guidelines in Kabul city,” said Mirwais, a resident in Kabul.
“Wearing a face mask is very important for all people because masks prevent the virus,” said Abdul Hadi, a resident in Kabul.
“You witnessed that it left significant casualties and financial losses for the world. Unfortunately, our people do not take the second wave of COVID-19 seriously,” said Abdul Jalal, a resident in Kabul.
Fewer people wear masks:
Hamid is a resident of Kabul who sells face masks in his car. He says that only a few people prefer to buy the masks.
“I sell masks, but I see that the people do not respect the lockdown,” said Hamid.
The Ministry of Public Health has also suggested the people avoid crowded areas such as wedding halls, parks and swimming pools.
“Our effort is focused on how to implement the health guidelines and other safety measures among the people which are helpful to reduce further infections of the people,” said Abdul Qadeer Qadeer, the deputy Minister of Public Health for policy and planning. (TOLO NEWS)
