The Ministry of Healthcare of the Republic of Kazakhstan officially declares that this information IS NOT CONSISTENT WITH REALITY.
It is important to note that WHO introduced pneumonia codes into the International Classification of Diseases - ICD 10, in cases when COVID-19 is diagnosed clinically or epidemiologically, for example with the “ground glass” opacities in the affected lungs, but is not laboratory-confirmed.
In this regard, Kazakhstan, like other countries of the world, keeps records and monitoring of this kind of pneumonia, in order to make timely managerial decisions aimed at stabilizing the incidence and prevalence of COVID-19.
On July 9 the Minister of Healthcare of Kazakhstan Alexey Tsoy indicated the total number of pneumonia cases in the country: bacterial, fungal, viral origin, including “viral pneumonia, unspecified organism” as defined in ICD-10.
Consequently, the Ministry of Healthcare of the Republic of Kazakhstan emphasizes that the reports of the Chinese media IS NOT CONSISTENT WITH REALITY.
