Meanwhile, people in Tajikistan are waiting with fear for the second wave of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).  People are worried about information on the increasing number of cases of COVID-19 in the Sughd province. The acting Director of the Sanitary-Epidemiological Service of Tajikistan, Navrouz Jaffarov, however, says that it is premature to speak about the second wave of the disease in the country.


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.
