Afghan media had also reported on the deadly effects of the winter in combination with the prevailing economic crisis. The news channel Amu TV reported 32 deaths on Monday. According to the United Nations, the “bitter cold weather” has also killed thousands of livestock in many parts of the country. According to meteorologists, temperatures could drop even further in the coming days.

Cold winters are not uncommon in Afghanistan, but temperatures are falling particularly low this year. In Kabul, temperatures of down to minus 20 degrees were reported on some days. Residents of the capital reported to the dpa about frozen water pipes. Heavy snow has blocked the main roads in many places, as the disaster management also reported.
