Refusing to admit sick people to the hospital while kicking out still sick people from the same will give the Tajik government some sort of statistical "success" with its battle against coronavirus.
As for elsewhere, Kyrgyzstan is entering a second wave of infections after lifting some of its local restriction on business and transport: https://menafn.com/1100340658/Kyrgyzsta ... D-19-cases There is a much more detailed article in Russian out there somewhere...
And Kazakhstan is also starting its second wave: https://eurasianet.org/kazakhstan-grapp ... virus-wave
So... lift restrictions = second wave, at least in Central Asia. I'm assuming my next trip will be mid-2021 at the soonest.
