In Kazakhstan, more than 8,500 medical workers have contracted coronavirus infection, Kazpravda.kz correspondent quotes Vice Minister of Health, Azhar Giniyat as saying at the online briefing at the Central Communications Service.

"The number of healthcare workers who tested positive for CVI is 8,518. There is no data on healthcare workers who contracted pneumonia. But if our healthcare workers who fell ill while fighting coronavirus or pneumonia claim payments, we will support them," Giniyat said.

Then a question was asked why only 123 health workers applied for payments.

"123 people are those, whose applications have already been considered and approved, in fact there are much more applications. These are considered cases, confirmed by the commission and transferred for payment," said the Health Minister Alexei Tsoi.

As of August 3, 92,662 cases of coronavirus infection were registered in Kazakhstan, 1,058 people died from the infection.
