Earlier, the Foreign Ministry also called for Uzbeks to refrain from traveling to Thailand because of the threat of coronavirus infection.

At the same time, Uzbekistan temporarily banned entry into the country of citizens of the PRC, Republic of Korea, Italy, Iran, France and Spain, as well as stateless persons permanently residing in these countries.
