Therefore, every citizen should be careful and comply with preventive measures,” said Askar Iskakov, Deputy Chief State Sanitary Doctor of Turkistan Region.

To date, 1,780 patients receive treatment in hospitals of the region, more than 8,000 at home. In general, coronavirus has slowed down over the past three days.
