COVID-19 has re-shaped our reality and changed the way we live. It has disrupted governance, business and caused a public health crisis. Coronavirus has revealed how fragile the public health systems are.

What shortcoming in the healthcare system has the pandemic revealed? What should be the appropriate response to the growing number of COVID-19 cases? What steps are the authorities taking to address the crisis? Why will the viral pneumonia cases be combined with the coronavirus statistics? How is access to the planned medical care and non-Covid emergency care maintained amidst the pandemic? To answer these questions, public health consultant Ali Nurgozhaev joined Lyazzat Shatayeva in the new episode of IMPACTFUL.
