In Kyrgyzstan, the incidence of chickenpox has increased sevenfold since the same period in 2021.

Dinara Otorbaeva, the Chief of the Prevention of Infectious, Parasitic Diseases, and the Department for Disease along with  Sanitary and Epidemiological Surveillance, the Kyrgyz Republic’s Ministry of Health, told reporters at the Kabar News Agency that experts believe this is because people have relaxed and stopped following sanitary rules.

Otorbaeva outlined the following guidelines for preventing viral and respiratory infections:

  • Adherence to the mask regime and social distance
  • Respiratory hygiene: using tissues to cover the mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, and then properly removing them;
  • People who are ill and have a high fever or other common cold symptoms should be isolated as soon as possible.
  • Adherence to sanitary and hygienic measures (hand hygiene, regular ventilation of premises, wet cleaning, etc. ).
