Deputy Chairman of the Cabinet of Ministers Edil Baisalov held on Thursday a regular meeting of the Republican Headquarters for Combating COVID-19, the press service of the Cabinet of Ministers reported.

During the virtual meeting, the HQ reviewed the epidemiological situation of coronavirus infection in the republic, as well as the progress of vaccination of the population.

The Ministry of Health reported that currently there is a decrease in the number of cases of infection. Meanwhile, the ministry recommends citizens to adhere to mask mode in places of mass gathering of people.

Edil Baisalov noted the importance of strengthening the vaccination campaign against coronavirus.

“The only protection against coronavirus is vaccination, especially for those with chronic diseases and for the elderly. According to WHO, in the coming months, countries may face one or more rises in the incidence of SARS-CoV-2, an increase in hospitalizations and deaths, which may or may not be accompanied by an increase in influenza and other respiratory infections, such as those caused by respiratory syncytial virus. The emergence of new strains or sublineages of SARS-CoV-2 can lead to new waves of infection with a corresponding increase in the number of hospitalizations and deaths, which can also affect the increase in the burden on health facilities,” he said.

The meeting resulted in a series of instructions to relevant agencies.
