Nur-Sultan mayor Altai Kulginov during an interview with Astana TV channel stated the need for citizens to be ready for a seasonal flu epidemic, Kazpravda.kz reports.

"As for the medical infrastructure, according to the forecasts of medical doctors and international experience, in the fall, during the ARVI season, you need to be especially careful. Because the ARVI season should not overlap with COVID. But it depends on the discipline of each member of society," Kulginov said.

According to him, to date, healthcare facilities in the capital have purchased over 500 oxygen concentrators and 500 fluometers (equipment that is designed to regulate the flow and humidification of medical oxygen supplied to the patient - author's note).

“Now we are reducing the number of hospitals due to the fact that many patients are discharged. We are purchasing additional number of medical beds. All this suggests that our doctors should be ready for the ARVI season if there is an outbreak. But we must not allow this", - he noted.

In conclusion, the mayor added that quarantine measures have significantly reduced the dynamics of the spread of coronavirus.

"The number of patients in hospitals has decreased by almost 10 times. At the peak, over 3 thousand people were simultaneously in hospitals, now about 380. The number of patients with pneumonia has decreased by 12 times. All this is thanks to the measures taken and the work of our doctors," the mayor summed up.
