According to her, the grant to the “exposure of the Russian disinformation,” which highlighted U.S. — “a complete waste of effort and money, because no one in the Russian Federation nothing falsificare and any other data we simply do not”.
Popov noted that in the country from the first day of the epidemic is recorded every infected citizen. In addition, death from COVID-19 are considered just as in Russia there was a practice when all the deaths are carefully recorded.
“The most reliable has always been considered a mortality. (…) And we are one of the few, and guru pathology say — the only country that makes a diagnosis on the results of post-mortem examinations in all cases. We have such a rule. It was, is and remains. And this eliminates the possibility of mistakes,” she concluded.
In the same transmission Popov said that currently can not be traced “alarming statistics” on share of deceased health workers of all the patients with COVID-19. The Minister stressed that “extraordinary figures”, different from that of other periods, no.
The US state Department has published information on the grant may 21. The U.S. government has offered to pay a quarter million dollars of the organization, which will prepare a report on “Russian and Soviet propaganda campaigns in the field of health care”.
