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.


Coronavirus cases around the globe have been reported at 65,536,644 since China reported its first cases to the World Health Organization (WHO) in December, Worldometer said today morning (06:25 GMT). Of them, 45,377,284 have recovered and 1,511,927 have died.


Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday ordered his government to start large-scale vaccinations against COVID-19 from next week.


Russia became the first country in the world to approve its coronavirus vaccine, Sputnik V, in August, authorizing the treatment for public use even before crucial Phase 3 trials were conducted. The move drew criticism from scientific circles.
