Kazakhstan’s health care system is ready to fight the new wave of coronavirus.
The city of Almaty reported 1,115 infected people.
According to the country’s Health Ministry, the outbreak of new COVID-19 cases is happening due to the spread of the Omicron variant.
The country’s President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev signed the corresponding decree.
The epidemiological situation with coronavirus infection in Kazakhstan has deteriorated sharply.
The risk of hospitalization with the Omicron variant is 40-45 percent lower, scientists at the Imperial College London said after a study.
Their effectiveness is currently being tested by the National Center for Expertise of Medicines.
It’s worth remarking that the Kazakh capital is now in first place in terms of the COVID infection rate in the country.
