Kyrgyzstan to Lift most Restrictions on Coronaviruses

Tuesday 19 May 2020

BISHKEK (Reuters) - Kyrgyzstan will lift most of the remaining coronavirus-related restrictions in the coming days, reopening the retail and services sectors and public transportation, the government said on Tuesday.

Hotels and most service providers will reopen across the country from May 21, while malls and large non-food markets — a key sector for Kyrgyzstan which serves as a regional hub for Chinese consumer goods — will reopen on May 25, Deputy Prime Minister Kubatbek Boronov told a briefing.

Public transit will also restart work from May 25, he said. Higher-risk facilities such as public pools and saunas will remain closed and so will schools, although kindergartens may reopen in June.

Kyrgyzstan has officially confirmed 1,243 COVID-19 cases with 14 deaths, and 898 people have recovered. It ended a state of emergency this month which had been introduced in March and saw curfews imposed in major cities.
