Kazakhstan is planning to cut down air communication with Ukraine, the UAE, Germany and Belarus, chief sanitary officer Yerlan Kiyassov has said.
During an online press briefing, Kiyassov revealed that the plans would be implemented in the nearest future and were dictated by the worsening epidemiological situation in those countries. The move, in his words, will also help curb the number of imported cases.
“We are indeed planning to cut down the number of flights to Ukraine, Germany, Belarus and the UAE,” Kiyassov told the press briefing.
He added that Kazakhstan would cut down only the outbound flights to the UAE. Earlier Health Minister Alexei Tsoi announced Kazakhstan’s plan to curb the number of flight with Turkey. (Kazinform/Business World Magazine)
