The COVID-19 pandemic in Tajikistan is part of the worldwide pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The virus was confirmed to have spread to Tajikistan when its index cases, in Dushanbe and Khujand, were confirmed on April 30, 2020.


The coronavirus COVID-19 is reportedly affecting 218 countries and territories around the world and two international conveyances.


Meanwhile, the United States and Canada have started vaccination with Pfizer jab. After the United Kingdom, the United States and Canada have become the two other nations in the world to start vaccination drives against Covid-19 with the Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine dose. Both U.S. and Canada have started administering the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine dose to healthcare workers and elderly citizens.


According to The New York Times, the first shots were given in the American mass vaccination campaign on Monday, opening a new chapter in the battle against the coronavirus pandemic, which has killed more people in the United States — over 300,000 — than in any other country. The vaccinations started after the F.D.A.’s emergency authorization of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on Friday night.
