Doctor and TV presenter Alexander Myasnikov dispelled rumors of low mortality from a new type of coronavirus COVID-19 in Russia. He made a statement on the air“Russia 24”.
Myasnikov expressed the view that minimal mortality among Russian patients confuses other countries.
The doctor pointed out that, when comparing, foreign journalists rely on data for one month, which, in his opinion, is not correct. He added that relying on such data cannot fully reflect the trend.
The presenter noted that amid the increase in mortality in Moscow in the amount of 1800 people, 600 of them die due to coronavirus.
“Similar statistics are also observed in other countries where the mortality rate from COVID-19 is lower than the overall increase in deaths,” Myasnikov emphasized.
Earlier, the Russian ambassador to the United States, Anatoly Antonov, sent a letter to the chief editor of The New York Times, in which he demanded to refute the publication of the publication on mortality from COVID-19 in Russia.
