(Fighting New Coronary Pneumonia) The number of children infected with the new crown virus in Kazakhstan surges. “Vaccine passport” counterfeiters will be severely punished
China News Agency, Nur Sultan, July 21 (Reporter Zhang Shuo) Recently, the epidemic situation in Kazakhstan has continued to deteriorate, and the number of severe and critically ill patients has continued to increase. In addition, according to relevant statistics, the spread of the new coronavirus among children has accelerated significantly.
President Tokayev of Kazakhstan presided over a work meeting on the prevention and control of the new crown epidemic a few days ago and expressed concern about the current situation of the epidemic. Tokayev said that the situation in Kazakhstan has deteriorated, especially in the capital city of Nur-Sultan. Tokayev asked relevant departments to formulate a work plan to curb the spread of the epidemic. He said that although the overall trend of vaccination is good, the distribution of vaccination rates in various regions is uneven. It is necessary to urgently set up mobile working groups to provide assistance to areas with low vaccination rates. In addition, except for large-scale group activities, no mandatory vaccination measures are taken. Tokayev also pointed out that while ensuring the treatment of patients with new coronary pneumonia, it is also necessary to increase the treatment rate of other patients.
In addition, according to statistics, since the beginning of the year, more than 30,000 children across the country have been infected with the new crown virus. Yesima Gambetova, chairman of the Health and Epidemic Control Committee of the Ministry of Health of Kazakhstan, said that the incidence of children in July doubled from January this year, and asymptomatic infections accounted for 86.5%.
According to information from the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Kazakhstan, up to now, the Internet Supervision Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs has investigated and dealt with 46 cases of Internet information selling false vaccination certificates and new crown test reports. The spokesperson of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Turrebek, said that local police agencies have set up special network monitoring teams to deal with information on the sale of false documents on the Internet. According to the relevant provisions of the “Forgery of Documents” in the Kazakh Criminal Law, the counterfeiters will be held criminally liable, and the maximum sentence will be 4 years in prison.
According to the latest news from the Ministry of Health of Kazakhstan, as of 15:00 local time on the 21st, there were 5,200 newly confirmed cases in the country in the past 24 hours, with a total of more than 563,000 confirmed cases.
