the chief Physician of hospital in Kommunarka Denis Protsenko explained the low mortality rate from coronavirus in Russia.
“Thank you, Italy. She showed us all the threat” – the expert opinion was aired at RT. The healthcare system in Moscow, which alone accounted for half of infected SARS-CoV-2, was ready for a large number of patients.
“we Do not question, who translate on a ventilator, and who not to translate. We have time to prepare,” – said Protsenko. However, he noted that it is too early to draw final conclusions, to examine the statistics.

In Moscow the share of deaths is slightly higher than the national average, but it’s easy to explain.
