COVID-19 mortality in the so-called “Donetsk People’s Republic”, the territory temporarily occupied by Russian-controlled forces, has become critical, says a leaked letter, purportedly signed by a health expert working as an advisor to the self-styled chief of the occupied areas in Donetsk region.
The document says the rise in morbidity in the unrecognized “DPR” in January 2021 (against December 2020) stood at 133%, while corona mortality for the same period increased by 131%.
The letter adds that coronavirus-related mortality makes up almost 9% of the total figure, which is the highest percentage globally.
At the same time, in the government-controlled territories of Ukraine, corona mortality is now fixed at 1.9%, while the world average stands at 2.2%.
At the same time, health officials in the unrecognized “republic” formally declare that the situation remains stable and sees positive trends, also claiming that the mortality is “on decline”.
