Eurasia Covid-19 Checkup October 27 2020


Second wave shows signs of peaking. Not much has changed over the past week. New cases in Uzbekistan have clearly peaked and are now declining. Belarus is moving from a swell to a surge, with new cases approaching the highs of the first wave. Ukraine and Russia are seeing similar hopeful signs with the occasional down day, but it is too early to predict a peak. Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia continue to see new daily highs. Only Kazakhstan has managed to avoid a second wave of Covid-19 infections.
