“Kazakhstan and Russia are actively cooperating to contain the coronavirus epidemic. I’m confident that we will overcome this challenge thanks to our joint efforts,” Tokayev wrote.

On April 30, Russian news channel Rossyia-24 broadcast a video conference between PM Mishustin and Russian President Vladimir Putin where the PM confirmed a positive result on the recent coronavirus test he took. Today Russian media reported that Mr Mishustin has been hospitalized with a high fever. His duties have been taken over temporarily by First Deputy Andrei Belousov.

Cooperation between all members of the Eurasian Economic Union will be strengthened as the member countries work together to recover from the Covid-19 outbreak and the devastating effects that the preventative lockdown measures had on the economies of the member states.
