Kyrgyzstan has declared a day of mourning for those lost to the coronavirus, as per a presidential decree signed on Monday. The national flag was lowered in Kyrgyzstan, and entertainment and television broadcasts were suspended. A statement from the decree reads as follows:

“This disease, which has become a global catastrophe, has saddened the people of Kyrgyzstan, we have lost our brothers and sisters. Parents, children, siblings, and relatives of our citizens died due to the disease. Our country has suffered irreparable losses. We express our deepest condolences to the families and friends of the deceased and urge them to be courageous. We ask the Creator for patience. If we all work together, if we are one force, one breath, we will overcome this catastrophe!”

The COVID-19 pandemic was confirmed to have reached Kyrgyzstan in March 2020. As of July 30, there were 35,223 cases and 1,364 deaths.

In accordance with the July 27 presidential decree, July 30 was declared the National Day of Mourning for those who died of the coronavirus. Since the beginning of the pandemic in Kyrgyzstan, 1,347 people have died from the coronavirus. The total number of infected people is 34,512. Of these, 1,047 patients were cured. On July 17, Kyrgyzstan began registering pneumonia as a coronavirus.

The coronavirus disaster has killed dozens of people these days, and the public is unable to recover. Most of the people who have died are doctors, prominent public and political figures, cultural figures, and people working in various government positions.

July was the worst month, with widespread outbreaks and casualties. Although the number of new cases and deaths has halved in recent days, the risk of the disease remains the same.

Earlier this week, the head of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said the coronavirus pandemic was the most serious challenge in the organization’s history. The way of life of all mankind is changing. “COVID-19 has changed our world. It has united some nations or societies and divided others,” he said.

Hundreds of volunteers are involved in the fight against the disease in Kyrgyzstan. The death of 22-year-old Adinai Murzabekova, a student at the Medical Academy, while working in the Red Zone, has shaken the country. The death of a young girl, one of the ten flowers, has become a symbol of the fight against the coronavirus.

After the health crisis became apparent, Kyrgyzstanis raised funds to provide medicines and equipment to medical facilities in almost every village in the country. Such charitable activities continue in all regions.

Sooronbay Jeenbekov is a Kyrgyz politician, and the President of Kyrgyzstan. He officially took office on 24 November 2017. He was also the Prime Minister of Kyrgyzstan from April 2016 to August 2017.

Foreign leaders and international organizations are sending letters of condolences to President Sooronbai Jeenbekov on the occasion of the Day of Mourning for the victims of the coronavirus.

President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said:

“Belarus shares the irreparable loss of Kyrgyzstanis who have lost loved ones and relatives due to the spread of the coronavirus. I am confident that the strength of courage in the fight for the health and life of everyone, reasonable and decisive steps will help to overcome the challenges associated with the epidemic in your country.”

The President of Tajikistan, Emomali Rahmon said:
