One more officially confirmed coronavirus-linked death was reported in Tajikistan yesterday, bringing a total number of the officially confirmed coronavirus-related deaths in the country to 71, according to the Ministry of Health and Social Protection of the Population (MoHSPP).


39 new officially confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) were reported in Tajikistan on Wednesday, bringing a total number of officially confirmed cases of the virus in the country to 8,899 as of the morning of September 10, says a MoHSPP.


7,683 (more than 86 percent) COVID-19 patients have reportedly recovered in the country as of the morning of September 10.


Besides, more than 1,000 people in Tajikistan have reportedly been treating COVID-19 at home under supervision of family doctors.


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, according to COVID-19 data provided by Worldmeter, coronavirus cases around the globe have been reported at 28,025,181 since China reported its first cases to the World Health Organization (WHO) in December. Of them, 20,103,385 have recovered and 908,000 have died.


CNN says the US federal government said yesterday it plans to stop limiting international arrivals from certain countries to 15 airports and funneling them through enhanced screening. Instead, passengers will be advised about risks.


According to CNN, a new study finds that the United States greatly undercounted coronavirus cases at the beginning of the pandemic, missing 90% of them – mostly because of a lack of testing. The research, published in the journal Nature Communications, reportedly supports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s own estimates that 90% of cases have been missed. The United States may have experienced over 6.4 million cases of COVID-19 by 18 April 2020, according to a probability analysis published in Nature Communications. In the same period, there were 721,245 confirmed cases.
