Afghan officials have not made any statement in this regard.

Some experts said yesterday that with the official borders being closed, illegal entrance into Afghanistan will increase which heightens the chance of spreading coronavirus in absence of due examinations.

On Sunday, the Afghan National Security Council decided to close borders with Iran to curb the coronavirus.

Iranian Embassy in Kabul announced yesterday that it stopped consular services for Afghans going to Iran.

Coronavirus has infected 61 and killed 12 in Iran.
