At the government session chaired by Prime Minister Askar Mamin, sanitary and epidemiological situation in the country was considered. Minister of Healthcare Alexey Tsoy reported on the current situation and the progress of vaccination of the population.

The situation in terms of morbidity and mortality from COVID-19 in the world remains tense. To date, more than 148 million cases of CVI have been registered in the world, more than 600 thousand cases are recorded per day. More than 3 million people died, the mortality rate was 2.1%.

According to the world ranking, consisting of the 221st country, Kazakhstan is in 108th place in terms of morbidity and 107th in terms of mortality.

As the minister of healthcare informed, as of April 27, 311,400 patients with a positive result of COVID-19 and 52,471 cases with CVI- were registered in Kazakhstan.

There are 10 regions in the high risk zone: the cities of Nur-Sultan, Almaty, Akmola, Aktobe, Atyrau, West Kazakhstan, Karaganda, Kyzylorda, Mangystau and Pavlodar regions.

There are 5 regions in the zone of average risk today: Zhambyl, East Kazakhstan, Almaty, Kostanay regions and the city of Shymkent.

There are 2 regions in the green zone: Turkistan and North Kazakhstan regions.

“The weekly dynamics of morbidity is characterized by a decrease in the growth rate from 46% from the end of March to 8% over the past week. The increase in deaths over the last week compared to the previous week decreased from 30% to 8%. Regions continue to adjust and adopt restrictive measures taking into account the epidemiological situation in the regions,” said Tsoy.

According to the electronic system for monitoring the employment of the bed fund to the level of each medical organization in the region as of April 27, 2021, the employment of infectious beds in the republic is 41%, resuscitation beds — 28%.

The maximum occupancy of infectious beds is observed in the Kyzylorda region — 58%, in Almaty — 57%, Almaty region — 57%, Nur-Sultan — 56%.

“A reserve bed fund of about 62 thousand beds has been created, of which 9,700 are purely infectious beds. Today, the reserve fund is already 26,189 beds, infectious diseases hospitals, departments of multidisciplinary hospitals are involved in all regions, with the exception of Aktobe, Kostanay regions and Shymkent. The maximum occupancy of intensive care beds is in the West Kazakhstan region — 57%, Almaty — 55% and Nur-Sultan — 54%,” the head of the department said.

As the minister of healthcare noted, today the vaccination of citizens of the Republic of Kazakhstan is carried out with two vaccines: Sputnik V and QazCovid-in.

“I would like to note that Kazakhstan entered the top 10 world manufacturers of vaccines against COVID-19. According to the world ranking of 177 countries, Kazakhstan ranks 52nd in terms of the number of people vaccinated against coronavirus infection. Vaccine delivery is carried out in stages according to the schedule, which makes it possible to ensure access to vaccination for 20% of the eligible population in April,” Tsoy said.

Together with NCE Atameken, the Ministry of Digital Development, Innovation and Aerospace Industry and local executive bodies in order to establish a balance between restrictive measures and business work, in January 2021, a pilot was launched to implement the Ashyq mobile application in the cities of Nur-Sultan, Almaty, Karaganda. Since April 26, the project has been scaled to the whole country.

“Today, Ashyq is being implemented at the following business facilities: fitness clubs, spa centers, swimming pools, bowling alleys, billiard and computer clubs, cinemas, theaters, concert halls, catering facilities, interregional and urban irregular (tourist) transportation. It is also provided for voluntary participation in Ashyq of certain areas of activity, without providing benefits, providing for the installation of the Ashyq mobile application to ensure the safety of employees and minimize the spread of Covid-19,’’ said Tsoy.

For the participants of Ashyq, training videos, an algorithm for issuing QR codes to objects have been developed. Taking into account the possible risks of involving unscrupulous participants in the project, criteria for their exclusion have been determined.

“The measures taken are aimed at regulating the activities of objects of entrepreneurial and (or) other activities, restrictions on places of mass gathering of people. As of April 27, the total number of project participants was 1,658, the application users are over 378,000,” Tsoy said.

In all regions, restrictive measures are taken differentially, taking into account the epidemiological situation (zones of high, moderate and low risk), for which the criteria for the activities of social and economic objects adopted jointly with NCE Atameken are applied. Currently, the current criteria are being adapted for facilities operating under the Ashyq project.
