Peskov emphasizes accuracy of Russia’s coronavirus death data
Russia’s coronavirus death data is accurate, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told CNBC.
According to an article on the CNBC website, Peskov "hit back at claims that the Russian data was inaccurate and insisted to CNBC that Russia is not misreporting virus fatalities."
"We conceal nothing," CNBC cited the Russian presidential spokesman as saying. "(The) cause of death is identified by autopsy. It is autopsy that helps us count precisely, and on this basis (a) diversification of death causes happens," he stressed.
"That is the difference between Russia and many Western countries, where they do not do postmortem examinations," the Kremlin sSpokesman emphasized.
