Political analyst Dmitry Nekrasov published on his blog a very interesting report on his personal observations of how the second wave of coronavirus is proceeding in Russia:
“I myself always try to rely on official statistics in my arguments, and I am skeptical about stories from the category “one woman said”. However, sometimes such stories can be interesting to someone.
In Cyprus, nobody I know has been sick. But here I have a smaller circle of contacts, and in general, the incidence rate is several times lower than the Russian one. But according to my Russian (mainly Moscow) friends and relatives, I can make the following observations:
And 6 more cases, already mentioned in the previous paragraph, boiled down to the following: people have a loss of smell, temperature, contact with sick people, they call a doctor, he does a test, the test does not detect a virus, and although there is every reason to believe that the corona, the doctor puts ARVI diagnosis.

And this is not necessarily because the bloody regime is manipulating something on purpose (somewhere, probably, but this is hardly the main factor), but because the system at the grassroots level works the way it does.
I forgot to say right away, but it's important. There are several cases from friends when one spouse was ill, and the other was not isolated from him. Including the case when my peer lay with a crown with a temperature for several days, and his wife took care of him all the time and did not get sick. My grandfather is 89 years old, after spending a couple of days with ailing parents (until they found out) he did not get sick and my mother's uncle, too, even though he was in close contact. In general, a lot of people are resistant for some reason..."
