Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev gave his cabinet two days to prepare a package of coronavirus restrictions to control the spread of the coronavirus.

“In foreign observers’ opinion, the situation in Kazakhstan is critical, on the brink of spiralling out of control,” Tokayev said, rebuking senior officials for reopening the country in a disorganized way and allowing the novel virus to resurge.

Tokayev ordered officials to boost the number of available hospital beds by 50 percent within a month, deploy mobile laboratories to make tests more widely available and prepare for a long-term pandemic.

Since the country started lifting a nationwide lockdown in mid-May, the number of infections has skyrocketed to almost 38,000 from about 5,000.
