The “Taliban” movement expressed its support for the vaccination campaign against Corona vaccines in Afghanistan, which received a pledge of $ 112 million in funding from the “Kovacs” program launched by the World Health Organization to combat Corona.
“The Taliban” spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told “Reuters” that the movement would “support and facilitate” the vaccination campaign that is taking place through the country’s health centers.
The vaccination campaign will be carried out in light of the continuing violence in Afghanistan, despite the fact that the government and Taliban militants began peace negotiations last September.
On Tuesday, an Afghan health official said that the “Kovacs” program launched by the World Health Organization has pledged to Afghanistan to allocate 112 million dollars to purchase anti-corona vaccines, in order to vaccinate 20 percent of the country’s population.
Afghanistan has recorded a total of 54,854 infections and 2,390 deaths from the virus so far, but experts say the actual numbers are much greater, due to the absence of full registration due to the limited number of examinations and the insufficient medical facilities in this war-ravaged country.
