Relying on official information from the state no longer makes sense, since state officialdom is lying and contradicting each other.
Judge the information for yourself:
On March 18, the Ministry of Health published a press release, which announced the official number of coronavirus patients in the country – 51 people. But if add up all the mentioned coronavirus patients in this press release – who is sick, who has been discharged, etc. there are 54 of them. There are many such inconsistencies in the press releases of the Ministry of Health.
On March 20, STV television broadcast Lukashenko’s words about a Belarusian who, after returning from Italy, fell ill with coronavirus, but he managed to make contact with 340 people who, according to Lukashenko, “they simply recovered the virus on their feet” (question, were they infected?). Official statistics of the Ministry of Health on March 20 – 81 patients with coronavirus.
On March 31, the same Alexander Lukashenko: “Simply our Vitebsk region always different by the climate, and this peak of morbidity has shifted a little.” Herewith, on March 31, the Ministry of Health reports that there are no data on new cases of coronavirus, the largest number of cases in the Minsk region, but in the Vitebsk region, everything is calm and “under control”.
On April 7, at a meeting on the situation with coronavirus infection with 30 officials and heads of health departments, Alexander Lukashenko said that 254 people died from pneumonia in January-March 2020, while the official figure of the Ministry of Health of 128 people who died from pneumonia in January-March 2020.
This text contains information about the situation with coronavirus, obtained from various sources – personal messages of people, references to the media, messages on social networks, and messages of telegram channels. We could not verify the information, at the moment, given the avalanche of messages, it is impossible. However, we plan to check all the information in order to see the scale of the disaster across the country.
We will also be grateful for the help of others in verifying this information and in supplementing it.
