According to the WHO data, globally, the number of new COVID-19 cases decreased by 12% last week.

Most cases were detected in the large cities due to the large population, especially in Almaty and Nur-Sultan, population shift, and the presence of international airports. She noted that stealth omicron develops milder symptoms, spreads faster than delta strain, and causes reinfection. The Minister noted that it is spreading countrywide.
Earlier the Minister claimed that there are no reasons to mandate the wearing of face masks in public.
