Kassym-Jomart Tokayev held a meeting of the Interdepartmental Commission on the situation with the spread of coronavirus infection. The President strongly criticized the work of the Government and akims, Akorda says.

According to the reports, the situation is under control. However, this is not the case. I have instructed my administration to conduct a review of the retail chain across the country on the availability of medicines. The results are not satisfied. In West Kazakhstan, Atyrau, Zhambyl and Karaganda regions, in Nur-Sultan and Almaty, there is a shortage of medicines and waiting lists, and facts of overcharging for vital drugs are revealed. The shadow market is thriving," Kassym-Jomart Tokayev said.

Law enforcement agencies conducted raids and checks in pharmacies that are engaged in wholesale and retail trade. According to the results of the audit, 270 persons engaged in illegal trade in medicines were brought to criminal and administrative responsibility, 116 of them are medical workers.

The head of state stressed that work in this direction will continue, and the perpetrators will be punished in accordance with the law.

In conclusion, the Head of state said that all data on coronavirus, including statistics, should be the prerogative of the Government to avoid the dissemination of false data from individuals who mislead the public.

At the meeting, reports were made by Deputy Prime Minister, head of the interdepartmental Commission Yeraly Tugzhanov, Minister of health Alexey Tsoi, Minister of internal Affairs Yerlan Turgumbayev, mayor of Almaty Bakytzhan Sagintayev, mayor of Shymkent Murat Aitenov, Governor of North Kazakhstan region Kumar Aksakalov, Governor of Almaty region Amandyk Batalov.
