Chinese officials informed that there had been an outbreak of deadly "unknown pneumonia" in Kazakhstan, with a higher death rate than Covid-19 has. This was reported by MailOnline.
"Chinese officials have warned of an outbreak of deadly 'unknown pneumonia' in Kazakhstan with a mortality rate which exceeds Covid-19's results," the statement said.
The Chinese embassy says that 1,772 deaths from pneumonia were registered in Kazakhstan in the first half of the year, including 628 in June. Although officials in Kazakhstan say that it is simply an epidemic of pneumonia, Chinese officials remain concerned because the death toll from the disease is much higher than from coronavirus.
Diplomats urged Chinese citizens to follow the same security measures as during the coronavirus pandemic. This is wearing a mask and following the rules of social distancing.
As we reported earlier, Ukraine's Healthcare Ministry claims that the number of citizens with Covid-19 who developed pneumonia decreases.
"Stepanov claimed that the number of patients who had pneumonia is dropping, and added that everyone who deceased over that day from Covid-19 were merely 21 people; they had serious coexisting illnesses and were in the risk zone," says the message on the website of the Presidential Office.
