Kazakhstan to tighten COVID-19 restrictions as outbreak worsens

ALMATY, June 18 (Reuters) - Kazakhstan will close shopping malls, markets and parks in major cities on June 20-21 and make additional hospital beds available for COVID-19 patients, the Central Asian nation’s government said on Thursday.

The government said the restrictions were needed due to a worsening of the outbreak there. It also ordered all provinces of the country to broaden their coronavirus testing. (Reporting by Olzhas Auyezov; Editing by Hugh Lawson)
