The website said that health reports from China warned of an unknown pneumonia that began spreading in neighboring Kazakhstan, and its cases are increasing rapidly.
According to the report, the source of these data is health officials in China, and although Kazakhstan officials denied the matter, China did not back down and warned that its neighbor is dealing with something very dangerous.
After the closure in mid-March due to the Corona pandemic, Kazakhstan reopened the country, but the rate of corona infection began to rise again.
It is not clear yet if there is a new virus hitting the country, but the authorities in Kazakhstan announced record numbers of Corona infections. Officials reported nearly 2,000 new infections in one day, a record for the country.
The report indicated that officials in Kazakhstan noticed a significant increase in the incidence of pneumonia in the country.
It is reported that the Corona virus began in China as an unknown pneumonia before it was announced as a new virus.
Kazakhstan denied earlier an accusation by the Chinese embassy that an outbreak of a lung disease more serious than the Corona virus was being registered in the Central Asian country, saying that it was “unrelated to reality.”
In a warning to Chinese citizens posted on the embassy’s website, Beijing warned of a disease “whose death rate is much higher than COVID-19.”
More than 24 million 229,710 cases of Coronavirus have been officially registered since the beginning of the outbreak, of which, to date, 15 million and 578 thousand and 100 people have recovered.
These numbers only reflect a part of the actual number of injuries, as several countries do not conduct tests except for the most serious cases, while other countries give priority to conducting tests to track contacts of the injured, in addition to the limited testing capabilities of a number of poor countries.
