Nagarhar Governor Shah Mahmood Miakhel and Deputy Head of Public Health Services Provision, Feda Mohammad Paikaan, inaugurated the center on Thursday.

“We’ve taken necessary precautions to prevent the spread of coronavirus in Nangarhar city in collaboration with the relevant departments,” said Mihakhel.
