The special quarantine regime has been extended in Azerbaijan, following Prime Minister Ali Asadov’s corresponding decree.

According to the decision, the special quarantine regime in Azerbaijan has been extended until 06:00 (GMT+4) May 1, 2023, in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection and its possible consequences, Azernews reports.

The deadline has previously been set for 06:00 (GMT+4) on March 1, 2023.

The first COVID-19 case in Azerbaijan was reported on Feb. 28, 2020.

The World Health Organization (WHO) on March 11 declared COVID-19 a pandemic. Some sources claim the coronavirus outbreak started as early as November 2019.
