The country also reported one of their highest death tolls as 34 fatalities were reported over the day, bringing the number of deaths to 737.
New cases were reported in the provinces of Kabul (220), Herat (24), Kunduz (17), Badakhshan (15), Takhar (12), Baghlan (11), Badghis (11), Daykundi (10), Kapisa (7), Logar (7), Nangarhar (5), Zabul (5), Wardak (3), Parwan (2), Kandahar (1) and Panjsher (1).
Health ministry officials said there were 24 unused ventilators in the inventory because the COVID-19 wards lacked the medical expertise to operate them.
Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) opened a new 32-bed hospital in Herat that would only take in severe patients referred from existing COVID-19 facilities.
