Chief Sanitary Doctor of Almaty Zhandarbek Bekshin answered the question whether a lockdown will be introduced in Almaty, Adyrna correspondent reports.
"It all depends on the epidemiological situation in the city. We explain security measures to the population. Still, there are violations. If the masked regime is maintained, if the social distance is valid, if we do not go to crowded places, then the epidemic will be stable.

If we stop visiting such facilities, lockdown will not be introduced, ”said Zhandarbek Bekshin, the city's chief sanitary doctor.
