American media reporters claim that the number of deaths from COVID-19 in Russia allegedly may be more than 70% higher than official statistics say. After the articles on COVID-19, right up to the deprivation of accreditation in the Russian Federation, the Russian Foreign Ministry asked the Duma to take action on the New York Times and the Financial Times.
“They also addressed the corresponding appeal to the OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media, Arlem Desir, UNESCO Secretary General Odre Azule,” the spokeswoman for the Foreign Ministry said. Zakharova also added that similar materials will be sent to the UN secretariat, as an example of the very “infodemia” that the organization’s Secretary General Antoni Gutteres called on the world to fight.
Commenting on these publications, Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova stated that Russia has never been manipulated by official statistics. According to the representative of WHO, there is no conscious understatement of mortality due to COVID-19 in Russia either.
Well, frankly, we didn’t have wearing masks culture before this pandemia. I can tell that 90 out of 100 Russians wear masks for police, not to be detained and fined. With gloves i didn’t see any. Only the workers in stores.
Yes, this is the latest number of dead on Russia, Carol. We count death stats from covid-19 if a person died in the result of lungs malfunction. Pneumonia, etc.
About testing. It is about 130k-150k maid daily.
Excuse me for several mistakes and typos. Was in a hurry))
Andy, Americans did not wear masks before this pandemic either. I do not see detaining going on when someone does not have a mask on. There will be approximately 25% in a store who do not have a mask on. I have not witnessed any policing going on. I know in Paris one much have a signed paper to show why you are out and if you have doctor’s permission. I do not see that the U.S.is testing unless someone has symptoms and then if positive they will test family members. When this is all over, if I do not actually get COVID-19, I will have a serum test done to see if I had a silent form of coronavirus. I believe these tests will be easier to get as we get further away from the daily ramping up of cases diagnosed. I am really hoping that when the stay at home orders are rescinded, some states earlier than others, that we will not see a huge spike in cases…..Carol
By this time:
Infected – 242 271
Recovered – 48 003
Dead – 2 212
In the vast majority of people, asymptomatic cases are detected. Like my colleague with whom I worked in Moscow. In my region, quarantine until May 23, but I think that they will add a week more. Masks and gloves are urgent, but not all wear them. My mother is an asthmatic since childhood and she just suffocates in a mask.
Andy, If you medically cannot wear a mask, such as in your mother’s case, you are excused from wearing a mask, at least here in Michigan. Public is not wearing gloves here. Workers in grocery stores, stores wear the gloves. Gloves only protects the wearer and are a prime source of potential spread of virus and bacteria as everything is touched. The thing is that masks and gloves become contaminated with virus, bacteria, etc. and if you continue to wear them you are spreading bacteria and viruses that are on them. But no one can have/afford/obtain enough masks or gloves to use responsibly for the purpose for which they are intended. For instance, each time a healthcare worker goes in to take care of a patient, he or she should change, gloves, gown, and mask. Each time…. Not once a day, not for a different patient, but for the same patient you might have been taking care of 10 minutes before. Out in public, I have seen people constantly touching their masks, not covering both the nose and mouth. The masks give a false send of protection and I see people talking with others and not maintaining physical distancing of at least 6 feet, but should be more like 13 feet, if the truth be told. Do you think the 2,212 dead is a real number? Carol
