“The Russian-occupation administrations in the temporarily occupied territory of Donetsk and Luhansk regions try to convince the local population through mass media that no persons with coronavirus symptoms have been identified. At the same time, information is withheld that the infectious disease departments of medical facilities, including the military ones, are overcrowded with patients having high fever,” the press service of the Ministry of Defense informs with reference to the Main Directorate of Intelligence.
In addition, it is noted that the increase in the number of deaths from acute respiratory disease is concealed. So, in the last week, nine people died of alleged "common pneumonia" in the 7th Luhansk city hospital. However, according to the pathologists, the causes of these deaths are characteristic of Covid-19. However, it is forbidden to indicate this information in official documents, the intelligence reports.
