The catering companies serving the state institutions will also resume their work.
Recreational centers, children’s summer camps, hotels, sports clubs and groups, fitness centers and gyms will start operating in the districts, towns and cities with the green level of quarantine severity.
To date, there are 3,662 COVID-19 cases in Uzbekistan. 2,837 people recovered; 15 died. Currently, 810 patients infected with coronavirus are under the supervision of doctors.
16 Kyrgyz citizens returned from India to Bishkek, the press office of the Kyrgyz Foreign Ministry reported. The chartered flight of Air India arrived in the Kyrgyz capital on June 1. All arrived citizens were taken to the observation point in accordance with the sanitary protocol.

However, many Tajik citizens do not believe the official statistics. According to the website ‘kvtj.info’, 360 patients infected with COVID-19 died in the country by May 29. This list is said to be compiled according to media reports and social networks, as well as according to the information of the relatives of the victims. The Tajik authorities, in turn, called this list fake.
According to Tajik Health Ministry, currently 1,886 COVID-19 patients are being treated in the hospitals.
According to the recent date, Turkmenistan still has not officially reported any COVID-19 cases.
