Since it first emerged towards the end of 2019, SARS-CoV-2 is rapidly spreading around the world countries. We all know that covid-19 cases have officially been reported in almost every country of the world.

At the same time, a small number of countries have reported no cases of covid. And one of these countries is Turkmenistan.

But, as per reports, the country of Turkmenistan has not miraculously escaped the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Somewhere, it too has experienced waves of infection.

In the past, we have seen North Korea denying reports of infection. Turkmenistan also seems to follow the same lines. They both are similar and popular to be very authoritarian regimes.

Additionally, they are extremely isolated states. In Turkmenistan also, the government has greater control over the media.

They have set this narrative of a golden age in Turkmenistan for the last 15 or 20 years. The same government, for more than a decade, has been claiming of no people living with HIV or AIDS in Turkmenistan.

But is it the lifestyle, diet patterns of the people of Turkmenistan that is saving them from this virus? Or is it the government hiding the reality?
