COVID-19 In Belarus: 7,281 Infected, +558 Cases In The Past 24 Hours
As of 22 April, 7,281 cases of COVID-19 have been registered in Belarus, the Healthcare Ministry reports. Thus, a daily increase of infected people is 558 new cases.

In total, 769 patients previously diagnosed with COVID-19 since the outbreak recovered and were discharged from hospitals. 58 coronavirus patients died. The growth rate of new cases was higher than today only on 17 April, when 575 cases were registered.



114,955 coronavirus tests have been carried out since early February. 25 labs doing COVID-19 tests in scientific-practical research centers, centers for hygiene, epidemiology, and public health, and private medical institutions work round the clock.

Experts mostly register not imported cases, that is the virus is transmitted from person to person within the country. The peak incidence is expected in late April-early May, while the trend of registering 300-400 cases a day will last another for two-three weeks.

The WHO mission that visited Belarus this month recommends to postpone public events, introduce physical distancing and distance learning, create opportunities for remote work and reduce the movement for the elderly and people with chronic diseases.

Meanwhile, the Orthodox Church urged the believers to stay at home and not to visit churches on holidays, and cemeteries on Radunitsa. Recall that the warnings didn’t stop some parishioners from going to church on Palm Sunday and Easter.
