The Washington Times names Kazakhstan a model in fight against COVID-19
The Washington Times published an article named “Kazakhstan is an anti-pandemic model for Central Asia” about measures taken by Kazakhstan to tackle coronavirus.
The article’s author Erzhan Kazykhanov, Kazakhstan Ambassador to the United States, highlighted Kazakhstan’s measures to prevent the spread of the deadly virus and prioritize financial support for medical workers during the pandemic.
“To date, both these efforts have largely worked. The COVID-19 pandemic is not growing exponentially in Kazakhstan as it is elsewhere in the world,” says the daily newspaper.
The Washington Times also reminded that the country’s anti-pandemic actions have gotten positive reviews from the World Health Organization and other international experts.
“The government acted quickly from the start. Tough quarantine measures were put into place early on. Public transportation was suspended, most organizations and institutions switched to remote operations, and streets and residential facilities were disinfected on a regular basis. Affected citizens received the care they needed in a timely way. These actions have significantly slowed the spread of the virus in the country,” says the article.
