Taking into account the recommendations of the Extraordinary Commission to Combat the Spread of Diseases in Turkmenistan, the country imposed limitations on recreation activities and swimming in the coastal zone of the Caspian Sea and in Avaza National Tourist Zone.
Minister of Health and Medical Industry Nurmuhammet Amannepesov reported on the decision of the Commission to the President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov during the video conference meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers on Friday.
The Minister noted that there is not a single case of coronavirus infection in the country, adding that this is a very good example and it is a result of large-scale work held in the country since 1995.
Amannepesov said the Commission had studied in detail the issue of organizing tourism and recreation activities in the summer on the Caspian coast, in Avaza and other regions of the country.
Given the difficult epidemiological situation associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as in accordance with scientific forecasts about the expectation of the second wave of the coronavirus, the Commission members considered that it would be appropriate to limit in the summer season mass gatherings in the Avaza National Tourist Zone, and swimming in the coastal zone of the Caspian Sea.
Following the briefing, the Turkmen Leader noted that it is necessary to follow the recommendations of the Extraordinary Commission to Combat the Spread of Diseases.
“In the future as well, we will take all necessary measures to ensure that our citizens live in peace and health and do not get sick,” President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov said.
