The construction of a new laboratory for the study and storage of most dangerous infectious pathogens has been completed in Almaty. The building was constructed according to all safety requirements and can withstand an earthquake with magnitude up to nine points. The new laboratory will store strains of such infections as Mears, Zika, pandemic influenza and many others. The first scientific studies will be launched next year. The main purpose of the object is the protection of Central Asian region’s residents from infectious pathogens. There are only three such laboratories in the world - in the United States, Canada and Georgia.

 

ZHANDARBEK BEKSHIN, CHIEF SANITARY DOCTOR OF KAZAKHSTAN:

Kazakhstan citizens travel around the world nowadays; of course there is a threat of bringing infections back to the home land. Therefore, we must be always ready to diagnose in due time and take anti-epidemic measures for non-proliferation of biological pathogens. We consolidate the storage of all pathogens here on behalf of our government, today.
