Uzbekistan introduces enhanced procedure for preventing the spread of coronavirus infection
Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) – Starting from 24 March, Uzbekistan has introduced an enhanced procedure for preventing the spread of coronavirus infection.
On 23 March, the Government of Uzbekistan adopted a resolution "On additional measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus infection."
According to the resolution, the entry to Tashkent from the regions is suspended (the movement of buses, minibuses, cars, rail and air transportation). This decision was made due to the fact that most cases of the coronavirus COVID-19 were detected in Tashkent.
At the same time, entry and exit to Tashkent are allowed to persons permanently registered in the city, as well as to employees of state bodies and organizations permanently registered in Tashkent region and working in Tashkent, as well as freight carriers. Employees of non-governmental organizations for entry and exit need permission from the employer.
The document notes that those entering and leaving Tashkent will be required to undergo medical monitoring to identify symptoms of coronavirus infection.
All vehicles, goods and goods entering or imported into Uzbekistan from abroad without fail will undergo disinfection. This procedure will also apply to vehicles, goods and cargo entering or leaving into Tashkent from other regions.
According to the resolution, if necessary, additional stationary posts and roadblocks of road patrol service can be organized.
The government banned the operation of all markets in Tashkent, Karakalpakstan and the regions, with the exception of dekhkan (food) markets.
In all major dehkan markets and shopping centers (supermarkets, hypermarkets, etc.) of Tashkent, and then in stages in Nukus, regional and district centers, thermal imagers and antiseptic agents will be installed at the entrance.
The government has banned disconnecting users of Internet and telephone services for two months for late payment.
If possible, the reception of citizens and business entities in state bodies and organizations, as well as the provision of state and other services to them will be transferred to the online mode.
All organizations, regardless of departmental submission and legal form, in the manner prescribed by law should send employees on leave. The remaining employees will be transferred to the remote mode of operation as much as possible.
