The "head" of the occupation authorities of the annexed Crimea, Sergey Aksenov, said that there were more people infected with COVID-19 than it had been detected, Crimea. Realities reported.

According to Aksenov, only those who have obvious symptoms of SARS, influenza, and pneumonia are tested for coronavirus.

"In Crimea, there may also be a negative scenario for the development of the coronavirus situation. If the detection process goes with obvious signs, then in theory, in the negative prognosis we can destroy all our observatories and hospitals. Yet, God forbid, healthcare workers will be infected, then we may lose healthcare facilities altogether. This is a negative outlook. Its probability is quite high,” he said.
