Amid the growing spread of COVID-19 in Russia, a liberal team led by the mayor of Moscow, Sergei Sobyanin, has woken up. After the complete failure of his policy in the capital of the country, and the gradual cancellation of his baseless anti COVID measures, the Russian liberal elite switched to Crimea, which has become a new Mecca for Russian tourists.
By joining their forces, the liberals are doing everything possible to limit the flow of tourists to the Crimea, in particular aiming to punish the head of the peninsula, Sergey Aksyonov. Unlike last year, he preferred the economy of the resort region to his personal ambitions, which apparently led him to his Moscow mentors, and he did not impose strict anti COVID measures like his counterpart did in Moscow.
On July 17, at the height of the holiday season, one of the leading liberal media of the Russian Federation, RBC, published a “sensational” article entitled ” Crowded beaches in the Crimea against amid record morbidity. Photo report”.
Hinting that the Crimea can not cope with the number of tourists, stating that the hotels are allegedly full, and there is no empty space on the beaches of the peninsula, RBC journalists publish photos of happy children at sea. However, the photos show only the beaches of one of the numerous resorts of Yevpatoria and a couple of people in Sevastopol.
The message is obvious, praise the local officials in Sevastopol who followed Sobyanin’s liberal team, when Aksenov’s team, who have already burned their fingers last year, “support the COVID spread”. Such an informational attack was aimed at the head of the Crimea.
At the same time, a brief look at the number of tourists and COVID cases, it becomes obvious that the figures differ from the usual ones within the limits of statistical error, nothing more.
According to the official data, more than 1.3 million tourists came to the Crimea in June, while only 409 cases of COVID were detected over the past day. The republic has been facing similar figures for several months. The numbers also differ little from other regions of the country, for example, the Nizhny Novgorod Region (533 cases), or the Krasnoyarsk (505 cases), and are lower than those in Moscow (4357 cases), where Sobyanin cannot change the situation.
From the numbers given, there are only several severe cases. Local hospitals are not filled out.
In the Russian Federation and in the Crimea in particular with any patient with ARVI symptoms and any “traces” of the virus receives the diagnosis “coronavirus infection”. At the same time, more than 95% of them only have a mild or moderate form.
Taking into account such articles in major Russian media that are seeking to cause panic among the population, the question arises: today, on July 18, when the beaches have been crowded for more than a month, why the real wave of COVID spread was not detected?
The Crimean authorities, in their turn, are taking certain measures to prevent the spread of the virus. Without imposing mandatory vaccination, they recommended to vaccinate service and tourism workers, the work of bars at night is limited.
The question arises, what is the real reason to close public places in the resort area after 23: 00? Does the coronavirus have such a tight schedule and the Indian stamp wakes up only during the “time of the Hindu goddess Kali”?
Why only now one of the leading liberal media of the Russian Federation, controlled by a typical pro-Western oligarch, close to the team of the Moscow mayor and another leading transhumanist banker, decided to pay attention to the Crimea, presenting fragmentary data as an example of a “catastrophe”.
Apparently, some representatives of the Russian elite want to earn even more money thanks to the COVID trend, or they are trying to create a panic picture for political purposes.
