Kazakh celebrities urge residents to stay home during holidays

Kazakh celebrities urge their fellow citizens to celebrate the upcoming holidays at home with their families. Many media personalities believe that this is not a good time for mass gatherings. The reason is simple: the COVID-19 pandemic. A singer Ali Okapov said that now is the time to think about the health of the loved ones, and self-isolation is the most effective way to prevent the spread of the virus.

“I hope that we are going to close this chapter of our lives in 2020, but let’s not forget that it all depends directly on us. Only we can turn this page, and this is a huge responsibility, not only for ourselves, but also for the people around us. So, as a responsible citizen, a musician, I think that isolation is the only and the surest way,” said the singer Ali Okapov.

A singer Nurlan Abdullin will also be staying home during holidays - he will celebrate them with his family. He said that his family has observed such order and discipline since the first lockdown.

 “We are already accustomed to this lifestyle, we try not to expose our loved ones to the risk of getting infected, we take care of each other. My fellow Kazakhs, I therefore urge you to follow all sanitary rules, including social distancing, and to respect, protect each other. I ask everyone to stay at home with their families,” said the singer Nurlan Abdullin.
