Bloomberg: Moscow recognized incorrect data on the number of infected COVID-19


Western media do not hide the fact that they are closely monitoring the development of the situation in Russia in connection with the coronavirus infection COVID-19.


For example, the Bloomberg agency informed the American public that metropolitan mayor Sergei Sobyanin at a meeting on March 24, 2020 reported to the head of state about the situation in Moscow. The mayor spoke about the problems with testing for COVID-19 in the regions of Russia, which can sooner or later lead to big trouble.

We monitor the latest data on coronavirus outbreaks and measures used to control it.

- reports Bloomberg.

Russia faces a greater threat from coronavirus than official figures show, due to a lack of adequate testing, warned Moscow Mayor President Vladimir Putin.

Really those who are much more sick

- quoted by Bloomberg Sobyanin.

The agency clarifies that the recognition of Sobyanin demonstrates the lack of vision by the Russian authorities of a complete picture of what is happening in the country. Sobyanin’s words are also cited, according to which, in Moscow, “a serious situation is developing” and “the dynamics of distribution is quite high”.

At the same time, the agency said that about 500 people were infected in Moscow, although 290 cases were officially registered in the capital, and 495 patients were identified in Russia as a whole. Bloomberg also mentioned Putin’s visit to the infectious diseases hospital in the Moscow Region, where they are treating infected COVID-19. The agency also drew attention to the construction of a new hospital and an increase in the number of hospital beds.

Moscow wants to have 5000 hospital beds, ready to work with coronavirus patients for three to four weeks, including through the construction of a "huge" new hospital, and is looking for another 5000 we want to borrow from federal services, Sobyanin told Putin. According to him, other Russian regions should strive to provide a similar level of readiness.

- emphasized in Bloomberg.


Bloomberg says, citing Russian media, that Russia could impose various penalties (from fines to seven years in prison) for violating sanitary rules during an epidemic. Moreover, the agency is concerned that, given the total population of Russia (146 million people), “the entire scale of the problems is not recognized” by the authorities.

Russian officials insist they speak openly about the epidemic and promise to step up testing. The authorities denied persistent statements in social networks and Russian newspapers that they plan to block Moscow in the near future in order to stop the spread of coronavirus

- says an article in Bloomberg.

The agency recalled that Russia closed its border with China back in January 2020, shortly after the extent of the outbreak became clear. At the same time, only recently the Russian authorities closed the entrance to the country for foreigners, canceled for two weeks classes in schools and meetings of people (mass events) for more than 50 people.

          Sobyanin is right - if the number of cases is incorrectly calculated, then the measures taken will be wrong. Trump said on Twitter yesterday that more cars are dying from god than coronavirus, but no one is banning cars, and he plans to allow the business to open by Easter. And all the states stood on their hind legs -

          ... we love our grandchildren and children more than production and business - we will not open. "

            The number of cases is incorrectly calculated everywhere; it is impossible to count patients who have not yet been identified. Judging by the number of tests conducted, Russia is in the top five. data on 17.03.2020/XNUMX/XNUMX:


            To consider that the number of cases underestimated artificially, I do not see.
            Now it’s more important how they are preparing for the epidemic, what measures are being taken. Our next week is not working, such are the paid vacations. Provision of ventilation devices in Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug 56 pcs. per 100 people, the average for Russia is 000. The truth is not always the case, the Kaluga region, for example, is lagging behind, if about 27 pieces are not mistaken. per 5, but it speaks more about the need for centralization in health care. Provision of medical equipment and medicines should be standardized throughout the country. I believe that if necessary, the devices will be brought up, and their production is increased. In general, the situation looks something like this:

            https://medvestnik.ru/content/news/Eksperty-nazvali-kolichestvo-apparatov-IVL-v-Rossii.html

            People are sympathetic to the problem, today I saw drivers in public transport wearing gloves and masks. Masks are worn in shops, banks, hairdressers, in general in public places. The truth is not all, but there is no reason to panic. To date, 4 cases have been identified in the district. I hope we can handle what I wish for you.

I am little susceptible to propaganda, anyone. As for Garik himself, a person lives in another country, and defends it, respectively, the position is understandable to me, deserves respect much more than many locals who slush their country. In general, our positions are different, each for their own country, but this does not stop talking. The arguments of the opposite side are worth listening to, otherwise it is a monologue.

                    In what is written in the article, I do not see a lie, only the "specificity" of the view from abroad. Accents are placed in their own way, they say, that's how bad things are in Russia, not like here, in America.
                    Speaking of facts, Sobyanin is absolutely right.

                    Actually, those who are sick are much more

                    If I’m not mistaken, the whole country has done 250 tests, as you know, our population is much larger. The real picture of the country is not clear. During the day, the number of identified cases almost doubled. It was 000, today it is a thousand. This suggests that they did not get sick yesterday, they just revealed them in a day. How many really sick, we do not know. And such a situation throughout the world, real infected is much more than official statistics.
                    I don’t see a reason to panic, compared to other countries, the situation looks pretty decent. But you should not relax. Still to come. The main thing is how we can deal with this, and such conversations from abroad will always be. You should not pay too much attention to them.
                    I repeat, I did not read the original article, it is difficult to judge.

                      123, attempts to destabilize the situation, escalating tension in society ... And they write ONLY negative things. Write positive - faith does not allow them? Or are they implementing the policy of the state, which in every possible way (including outright LIES) is trying to destroy Russia? It would be possible not to write all this here, and not to discuss, but after all, fans of such "truths of the last resort" are noted here too - everything is bad with us, we are in poverty, the economy is in tatters, and they are all in white and shine ... But not only fans of the "city on a hill" are not only the Yankees themselves (like this garik and others like him), but also various Grisha ... And this is already bad. The question is - why don't the Yankes themselves have such trolls? The answer is that they will immediately sue and jail. There they have it strictly with this - they do not bother with all sorts of "human rights" - they plant and shoot - just go!

                    2. The United States leads in terms of the number of prisoners in absolute terms - about 2,2 million people are in jail. This is 25% of all prisoners on the planet (more than in the 35 largest European countries combined, and 40% more than in China), although the US population is only 5% of the world's population.

                    In my opinion, Sobyanin says quite robust things. Quote from the article at the link:

                    “The fact is that the testing volume is very low, and no one knows the real picture in the world,” said the mayor of Moscow.

                    It really is. We have not yet fully realized the onset of a new reality. Hence the squabbles over nothing. Too many emotions. Do not exacerbate disputes. There are no serfs here, and what are the words of "Himself" about objection? "Himself" said that we do not have a coronavirus? He knows.

    A good interview with our serious infectious disease specialist.

    https://www.kramola.info/vesti/protivostojanie/infekcionist-o-bezumnoy-panike-v-rossii-i-otsutstvii-tyazhelobolnyh

    And here there is information before (somewhere in January I came across) about the local flu epidemic in the United States last fall. 15 - 20 million people were ill, 20 died.

    https://inosmi.ru/social/20200130/246736871.html

    And no one knew anything. There was no information. Then no one needed a tantrum. Then it was needed. Most likely, in order to motivate a record collapse of the markets. DJ30 index decline began on 12.02.2020. and continued, at least until 23.03.2020/30/2008. The fall rate of the index was a record, it exceeded the fall rate of the DJXNUMX during the XNUMX crisis. in 12,8 times. And no one stubbornly notices this. It is possible that this was organized in order for some large assets to change the owners of controlling interests.

    There was once a joke in the distant, distant past.

    About passing the exam in honey by a student-dvoechnik.

    A wriggling worm is placed in a glass of alcohol. She quickly fades away forever. When the examiner asked what this would mean, the future Aesculapius profoundly said: "Drink vodka - there will be no worm."

    Well, for the victory!

    I quote Valentina Matvienko, who stated:

    I believe that at this stage, the Russian Federation has taken sufficient measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus and there is no need to frighten with various unrealizable measures, "Matvienko said, answering the question of how she feels about introducing full quarantine in the country and closing the borders.

    When Putin has such unfortunate "helpers", I understand that the country is in danger. We have not closed the border with Europe. And now we have what we have.

    The mayor spoke about problems with testing on COVID-19

    They lie, as always, this is what Sobyanin said on the 24th of Putin’s:

      No matter what they say or whoever says that Putin, that Sobyanin, that Macron, that Merkel, that Trump - they do not have a common calculation methodology. What can we say about the world, if Russia has not yet decided ... officials here are refining, just in case, having decided that they will certainly not be praised for a large number of cases.
