The sharp increase in cases of coronavirus infection in North Ossetia is associated with an unauthorized rally held in the center of Vladikavkaz on April 20. People went to the square to say that they did not believe in the danger of the disease.
This is what the head of the republic, Vyacheslav Bitarov, told our television channel.
“On April 20, a certain group of people gathered – those who, unfortunately, do not believe that there is a coronavirus, those whom we were not able to convince of. And today, after a week, we feel the results of this collection. Today we have 763 infected, three fatalities. We see how the number of infected increases every day because of those people gathered in the square, “said Vyacheslav Bitarov.” We urgently entered the second hospital. Initially, we authorized to deal with the treatment of patients with an emergency hospital aid, and now they are forced to put into operation a republican hospital. “
