Putin: the stuffing about the outbreak of coronavirus in Russia was organized from abroad

Who exactly is the organizer of the information stuffing and from which countries it comes "fakes" – the president did not specify

Vladimir Putin, at a meeting with government members, said that the situation with the spread of coronavirus both in Russia and in Moscow is under control and "nothing critical is happening yet", and information stating the opposite was thrown into social networks from abroad for the purpose of "sow panic among the population".

Putin said that the FSB had reported this to him. Who exactly is the organizer of the information stuffing and from which countries it comes "fakes" – the president did not specify.

In the same time "Interfax" reported the arrest of several suspects in the spread of fakes about the outbreak of coronavirus in Moscow. Who exactly was detained is also not specified. The agency’s source only said that a pre-investigation check is being carried out against these persons..

As of March 4, over 94 thousand people are infected with the COVID-19 coronavirus in the world, which came from China. 3 thousand 201 people died. China, South Korea, Iran and Italy remain the main foci of infection. In total, the virus was detected in 76 countries.

On March 2, the Russian authorities confirmed the first case of the import of coronavirus into Moscow. A young resident of the capital who visited Italy fell ill. He was hospitalized, his immediate entourage and passengers on the same flight are being monitored by doctors and so far no one has been found to be infected. Three more people infected with coronavirus are kept in a hospital in Kazan.

Many experts note that the small number of infected people in Russia may be due to poor diagnosis. Bloggers on social networks joke that this was influenced by Putin’s amendment to the Constitution, which recognizes the existence of God.
