Meeting on epidemiological situation opened in Akorda

A meeting has opened in Akorda on the epidemiological situation in the country with participation of the President.

At the meeting, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev criticized the work of regional leaders during the pandemic.

“About 2.8 million people have completed the immunization course. However, despite the good dynamics, the situation is extremely ambiguous in terms of regions. The pandemic has become a kind of test for regional leaders, Tokayev said.

As he noted, mobile teams should be urgently formed to provide methodological assistance to regions with low vaccination coverage.

"At the same time, it is extremely important to take into account the specifics of the region, to study the mood in advance, "the President added.

During the working meeting , President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev instructed the Government to provide a clear plan of operational actions within a month, Kazpravda.kz correspondent reports.

“All the issues raised today should be under the Government’s special control. We need a clear plan of operational actions. I ask you to report on the measures taken within a month. The virus hits our dearest people. Our older generation suffers in this struggle, but what is very bad - children. The only way to protect yourself and your loved ones from this danger is vaccination. World medicine has not yet proposed other methods and is unlikely to offer any in the foreseeable future, "the President said.

He once again reminded that the vaccine is the only chance for Kazakhstanis to protect themselves and their families.

"Our children should not pay for our mistakes! We cannot lose our loved ones in peacetime," Tokayev concluded.
