ATYRAU (KazInform) — 71 more coronavirus cases were recorded in Atyrau region over the last 24 hours. 15 of them were detected in the city of Atyrau, 46 at Tengiz oilfield, the Kazakh sanitary and epidemiological control department reports.

Authorities in the Atyrau region in Kazakhstan have ordered Chevron-led Tengizchevroil, operator of country’s largest oilfield development, Tengiz, to tighten restrictions at the field and surrounding areas.

As of today, 102 are staying at the regional infectious disease hospital, 39 at district hospitals, 718 at Tengiz oilfield. 66 people recovered from the infection in the region. As earlier reported, the region is the coronavirus “red zone”.

Kazakh oil production remains some 130,000 barrels per day below average amid power outages caused by winter weather, a source familiar with the daily output data told Reuters on Monday.
