Total lockdown may be introduced in Almaty

The chief sanitary doctor of Almaty, Zhandarbek Bekshin, informed today about the tightening of the quarantine regime in the city, warning that the scenario of introducing the most stringent restrictive measures is being seriously considered if the surge of coronavirus infections in Almaty continues to grow.

"If more than 500 patients are hospitalized per day, the issue of a complete lockdown will be considered," Sputnik-Kazakhstan quotes him as saying. So far, 300-400 new cases of coronavirus infection are registered in Almaty per day, and therefore the city is in the ‘red zone in terms of epidemiological danger.
