According to the data from the Ministry of Health and Social Protection of the Population (MoHSPP), 40 new officially confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) were reported in Tajikistan yesterday, bringing a total number of the officially confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the country to 11,894 as of the morning of November 23.


The number of coronavirus-linked deaths remains the same in the country – 86, a MoHSPP says.


42 COVID-19 patients were reportedly discharged after recovery yesterday.  In all, 11,271 (97.4 percent) coronavirus patients have reportedly recovered in the country as of the morning of November 23.


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.


Meanwhile, Worldometer says there are currently 58,970,489 confirmed cases and 1,393,227 deaths from the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak as of November 23, 2020, 01:15 GMT.  40,767,253 have reportedly recovered.


World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus urged world leaders to allocate coronavirus vaccines fairly today during a virtual G20 summit.  “Fair allocation of vaccines is central to the pandemic endgame, and a faster global recovery,” Tedros said in a copy of his opening remarks, released by WHO, according to CNN.  Tedros reportedly said there is a need for an immediate investment of $4.5 billion for vaccines.  Tedros noted that the G20 — which represents two-thirds of the world’s population and 80% of the global economy — will play a vital role in not only ending the coronavirus pandemic, but preventing future pandemics.  “To prevent future outbreaks and their impact on lives, livelihoods and economies, all countries must invest in preparedness and universal health coverage,” he said.
