Kyrgyzstan extends state of emergency until May 10

BISHKEK, April 28 (Reuters) - Kyrgyz President Sooronbai Jeenbekov has extended until May 10 the state of emergency imposed to curb the coronavirus pandemic, his office said on Tuesday, following similar moves by its Central Asian neighbours.

Kyrgyzstan has confirmed 708 cases of the disease and used the state of emergency to lock down major cities and several provincial districts where outbreaks were registered. (Reporting by Olga Dzyubenko Writing by Olzhas Auyezov Editing by Catherine Evans)
