    COVID-19: Kazakhstan Extends Lockdown For Two More Weeks

    Kazakh President Qasym-Zhomart Toqaev has ordered an extension of a nationwide lockdown by another two weeks to stem the outbreak of the coronavirus a day after officials began discussing a possible easing of restrictions.

    Toqaev made the announcement on July 29 while meeting with Prime Minister Asqar Mamin and Health Minister Aleksei Tsoi.

    A day earlier, Tsoi recommended that the government start easing coronavirus restrictions as of August 3.

    On July 5, amid an abrupt increase in cases of the coronavirus and acute pneumonia, Kazakhstan imposed additional restrictions for 14 days. On July 13, the lockdown was prolonged until August 2.

    Kazakh health authorities said on July 29 that the number of coronavirus cases in the country was 86,192, with 54,404 patients recovered and 793 died.

          Kazakhstan to merge pneumonia and coronavirus cases, but only from Aug. 1

          234,000 pneumonia cases from earlier this year will not be included in the tally.

          Jul 23, 2020
          Health authorities in Kazakhstan say that they will merge tallies of pneumonia cases into overall statistics on coronavirus, but that they do not intend to apply this protocol retrospectively.

          Health Minister Alexei Tsoi said in televised remarks on July 23 that the new system for counting suspected and confirmed coronavirus infections will be implemented only from August 1.

          The change of tack comes in response to mounting suspicion that the scale of the COVID-19 outbreak is not being accurately captured, since many patients diagnosed with pneumonia are not being tested for coronavirus. Or that when those tests are done, they are returning false negative results.
