Olena Zelenska, the wife of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenski, announced that she had been diagnosed with the new coronavirus, but that her husband and the couple's two children had been tested negative.
"I received a positive coronavirus test today. Unexpected news, considering that both me and my family still follow all the rules - masks, gloves, minimal contact ", wrote the first lady of Ukraine on Twitter.
However, she explained that she is feeling well, not being hospitalized at the moment, but that she will be isolated from her husband and children. According to the press service of the President's Office, the first lady currently has no symptoms of the disease.
However, in order not to spread the virus, Olena Zelenska is on outpatient treatment, isolated from other family members. The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenski and the children also passed the test, their results being negative. Ukraine has so far reported 29,753 coronavirus infections, with 870 people losing their lives due to COVID-19.
Experts believe that the situation with the coronavirus epidemic in Belarus is at the point where an urgent decision is needed. The number of cases began to increase by 30-40% per day.
The population of Belarus begins to complain against the fact that the country's president, Alexander Lukashenko, does not introduce any quarantine measures in the country, but, on the contrary, practically denies the existence of an epidemic. Residents made a petition calling on the authorities to quarantine. It has already been signed by more than 150 thousand people.
Moreover, the son of a resident of Polotsk, who died of pneumonia, Lidia Matveeva, who was diagnosed with a coronavirus, wrote a statement to the police demanding to institute criminal proceedings against the president, Alexander Lukashenko.
Economist Aleksnadr Rogers believes that it is too early to talk about the alarming situation, Lukashenko still has time to maneuver.
Here the situation is not simple: Alexander Grigorievich is a stubborn man, if he has decided something, he will not give up. So I'm not sure that he will make another decision. But, on the other hand, it’s also impossible to say exactly how much sick, the tests in Belarus are few, the influx of patients, a certain critical mass is also not observed, and the statement to the police is, excuse me, a cry of the soul, one can only sympathize with a person, - says Rogers.
The expert noted that, according to rumors, an epidemic has been going on in Belarus for a long time, and the death toll is increasing, they just make doctors hide everything, but it is not possible to verify the plausibility of such statements.
Alexander Lukashenko himself laughs at the quarantine question, saying that you can enter quarantine in 24 hours, but "who will feed us" or that "cows on a remote place do not milk."
Political analyst Dmitry Rodionov believes that he has no other option.
Lukashenko will pull to the very last. It’s hard to say where the hell is, when he realizes that you can’t do without quarantine. He may try to hide it, somehow manipulate data, but corpses are corpses. You can’t hide them, ”says Rodionov. - This is a double-edged sword: Russia can survive the quarantine - we have reserves, but Belarus has a small economy, and the country is not rich. You look at America, there over a month already ten million have lost their jobs. And in Belarus, and 100 thousand unemployed enough to start a crisis.
Rodionov believes that the key to this pandemic is the very free manipulation of the number of deaths. On the one hand, it is possible to call all victims of the coronavirus its victims, on the other hand, the death toll from the virus can be underestimated in the same way, transferring death to other causes. Whether Lukashenko adheres to one of these strategies, time will tell.
Dmitry Rodionov noted that elections will be held in Belarus this August, so the absence of economic disruptions is one of the priorities of domestic Belarusian policy.
It cannot be said when Lukashenko will change his attitude towards the epidemic and whether it will, however, most likely, in April it will become clear how the epidemic will go across Belarus. So, Russia should also be ready for such a development of events, since Belarus, despite the specific relations in the field of hydrocarbons, remains our main ally and brotherly country, ”he added.
The publicist Anatoly Wasserman, on the contrary, believes that it makes no sense to cheat with numbers, since the result will be exactly the opposite.
- To hide such things is more expensive. When they try to hide something, they distort the picture for themselves, which means they do not have the information necessary for making decisions. By the way, historians therefore trust the documents of internal reporting more. I note that many quarantine measures in Belarus have been taken for a long time. Borders are controlled by neighbors, even with Russia, transit flows have been supervised from the very beginning, much is already being done.
Also, according to him, there is no consensus among epidemiologists on which system to combat this infection is the best. So Belarusians could experiment.
The coronavirus pandemic is a punishment from above for an irresponsible attitude towards the environment. This opinion is shared by President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko.
“I once said that he (God. - Ed.) Saw that we are behaving irresponsible towards ecology, a lifestyle that does not meet our criteria at all, and hit us (with a coronavirus pandemic) . - Ed), ”BelTA quotes him on April 25.
Such a statement was made by Lukashenko during the republican subbotnik on the territory of the Pripyatsky National Park. Previously, the Belarusian leader regularly visits the areas affected by the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, which occurred on April 26, 1986.
Earlier, in April, Lukashenko condemned the closure of churches in different countries against the backdrop of a pandemic and refused to close state borders, calling this measure "utter stupidity."
In his opinion, those infected with coronavirus do not die from infection, but from the chronic diseases that they had.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommended that the Belarusian leader introduce quarantine and curfew in the country. However, in response to criticism about the inadequacy of measures to combat the pandemic, Lukashenko said that critics do not know how the country lives.
According to Worldometer data, on April 25, in Belarus, coronavirus was detected in over 8.7 thousand people, 63 patients died.
Ben McLean, a student at Darmouth University, said his family was surprised when Winston became the world's first dog found with COVID-19. Ben's parents were tested and detected with the new coronavirus in March. His father, a doctor at a hospital in North Carolina, became ill first, and soon his wife became infected. Ben McLean showed symptoms but was not tested.
After recovering, the three decided to participate in a study conducted by Duke University. Patients were asked to donate plasma and be tested for antibodies. Subsequently, they were asked for permission to have their pets tested.Winston was tested on April 1 and the result was positive.
All members of the McLean family, including Winston, have been declared healed and now practice social distance as a precaution. "Winston recovered. Today I went for a walk and ran through the park," said Ben McLean.
Comic-tragic situation for the passengers of an air flight. 12 of the 91 passengers on a Qatar plane flying to Athens were tested negative for the new coronavirus. On landing, however, they were tested again, the result being a positive one.
As a result, Greece has suspended all flights to and from Qatar after some passengers on a Doha to Athens flight tested positive for COVID-19. Greek authorities say 12 of the passengers contracted the virus, the rest being healthy. "Because of this, flights to and from Qatar are suspended until June 15," they said.
However, the airline claims that all the passengers of the flight were healthy before boarding, in Doha.
Among those tested positive are nine Pakistani citizens living in Greece, two Greeks living in Australia and a member of a Greco-Japanese family. These people will be quarantined in a hotel for two weeks.
After a gradual exit from isolation on May 4, the tourist season officially begins on June 15 in Greece, with the reopening of seasonal hotels and the resumption of numerous international flights from the regions least affected by the pandemic.
Greece on Friday announced the opening of airports in Athens and Thessaloniki for tourists from 29 countries, including 15 in the European Union, starting June 15.
Between June 15 and 30, the planes will only be able to land in the two cities. The other regional airports and those on the Greek islands will not reopen until July 1.
