Second wave of COVID-19 can root out middle class in Kazakhstan: deputy
Astana. September 30. KazTAG - The second wave of coronavirus can finally destroy the middle class in Kazakhstan, said Kenes Absatirov, Majilis deputy.
“Against the background of external trends, society is concerned about the threats of a new wave of infection in our country and a repetition of the summer nightmare. In addition, entrepreneurs fear a repetition of business shutdown despite the fact that many SMEs have not restored their operation yet. For this part of society, the next wave may be the last, finally destroying the undermined middle class, ” Absatirov said, reading his parliamentary request addressed to Prime Minister Askar Mamin.
He asked the government to inform about the measures taken to prevent a new wave of the pandemic, as well as the measures to provide urgently needed medicines, bed capacity in hospitals and intensive care equipment, including in the regions.
