A fatal 'unknown pneumonia' with a death rate far higher than that of COVID-19 has reportedly broken out in Kazakhstan, Chinese officials have warned.


According to the Chinese embassy's website, which is citing local media reports, the Atyrau and Aktobe provinces, as well as the city of Skymkent, have seen spikes in cases of the disease since mid-June.


Kazakhstans Health Ministry says it has recorded more than 32,000 cases of pneumonia between June 29 and July 5 alone, along with 451 deaths.


The embassy states that Kazakhstan saw 1,772 pneumonia deaths in the first half of the year, including 628 in June, some of whom were Chinese nationals.


The warning is oddly reminiscent of when Chinese scientists announced to the world in January that they had discovered  a never-before-seen strain of coronavirus that resembled pneumonia, now known as SARS-CoV-2.


The embassy has described the illness as an 'unknown pneumonia'' despite officials in Kazakhstan saying it is merely a pneumonia epidemic.


It's currently unclear why the Chinese embassy has described the pneumonia as 'unknown' or any information it has about the outbreak.  


'The death rate of this disease is much higher than the novel coronavirus,' the embassy wrote in a warning to Chinese citizens in Kazakhstan. 


The countrys health departments are conducting comparative research into the pneumonia virus, but have yet to identify the virus.'     

Diplomats urged Chinese nationals to take the same precautions as they were with coronavirus.  


This includes people not leaving their homes unless necessary, wearing a face mask, practicing social distancing and washing hands thoroughly and often.


Some 300 people diagnosed with pneumonia are being hospitalized every day,' Saule Kisikova, the health care department chief in Kazakh capital Nur-Sultan, told state news agency Kazinform.



Chief sanitary officer Ayzhan Esmagambetova says the mortality rate from pneumonia has increased in Kazakhstan four times in June 2020 compared to the same time frame last year. 


She added that many of those who have fallen ill were not diagnosed with COVID-19, reported RT News.
