Iran PressAsia: Malek Mohammad Khan Medical Center is the only medical center in Afghanistan's Saydabad District of Maidan Wardak province where more than 600 patients visit daily, but due to a lack of medical staff and equipment, only 200 patients are treated.

The hospital has 40 beds, and currently, more than 70 patients are hospitalized.

Mohammad Sharif, an Afghan citizen living in Saydabad, said that Malek Mohammad Medical Center was facing a lack of medical facilities and staff, adding that not all patients could be treated.
