Head physician of Minsk hospital No. 71 Alexander Myasnikov, known to television viewers as Dr. butcher, said the reasons for the “Russian miracle” during coronavirus. This he said on the YouTube channel, “Soloviev Live”.

Butchers found it difficult to explain the reason for the low mortality from COVID-19 in the country, but recalled his statement about “Russian miracle”. In his opinion, this phenomenon is typical not only for Russia but for other countries of the former USSR. “If we know what it is, then maybe the world will find a cure or a weapon against COVID-19. There’s something here I don’t know what. Maybe that BCG may be, our microbiome, the level of vaccination,” — said the doctor.

He suggested that one reason for the “Russian miracle” can be a large number of hospitals and their dispersion, thus avoiding nosocomial infections. Also in Russia is less than nursing homes, in contrast to Italy. However, all these reasons can explain a tenfold difference in mortality in Russia and in Europe.

The doctor rejected the assumption of the inaccuracy of statistics, stressing that the country is strictly referred to as “games” with data on mortality.

11 APR butchers for the first time declared the “Russian miracle” in the epidemic of the coronavirus. “We have deaths from coronavirus is much lower than from the flu, and considerably lower than that of other pneumonias,” said the medic. He noted that the Russian health care system may be more adapted to extreme situations.

Butchers since 2010 works as the chief physician of hospital №71 name of Radkevich. The doctor appears regularly in the program “About the main thing” on the channel “Russia 1”, and is broadcast on the YouTube channel “Soloviev Live”.
