Kazakhstan may stop resuming flights to other countries, correspondent quotes the Health Minister of Kazakhstan, Alexei Tsoi, as saying at the Government meeting.

"Given the deteriorating situation in foreign countries in order to prevent infection, it is proposed to suspend the resumption of additional flights with other countries from October 5, not to increase the number of flights with countries with which they have been resumed, and also to reduce the number of flights to Turkey," Tsoi said.

The Minister noted that for persons arriving from countries of the second category, it is necessary to establish such mandatory requirements as thermometry, questionnaires, the presence of a certificate of examination for COVID-19 with a date of receipt (no more than 3 days).

"In the absence of a certificate, the arrivals will be isolated in a quarantine hospital for up to two days to conduct laboratory tests on COVID-19. It is proposed to apply similar requirements to persons crossing the border at checkpoints and at air crossings with the EAEU countries and Uzbekistan. In this regard, I ask you to instruct akims of the regions, of Almaty, Nur-Sultan and Shymkent to ensure the availability of quarantine hospitals at the border crossing points, as well as testing of arriving people, "Tsoi offered.
