Scale of coronavirus spread concealment revealed in Russia's Sakha

Today in Russia, another record peak of new coronavirus cases was recorded at 9,623 across 83 regions, including 57 deaths.  In total, 124,054 cases and 1,222 fatalities was recorded in 85 regions (COVID-19 mortality rate in Russia remains below 1%, which raises serious doubts about the veracity of these data).

But let's focus on just one region, which, perhaps, could be seen as a litmus test for the real scale of the epidemic in the Russian Federation.  I'm talking about the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), where 34 new cases of coronavirus infection were reported a day, bringing the total number to 263 over the entire period since the start of outbreak.

The fact is that Deputy Prime Minister of Yakutia Olga Balabakina published a post on her Telegram channel stating that 3,500 employees of Gazprom's Chayandinskoye field were infected with the coronavirus.

She deleted the post in a short while, but it was too late ... The statement was shared by mass media, including federal ones like RIA Novosti.

RIA Novosti said “a third of all employees” got infected, which actually equals the mentioned number of 3,500 (a total of 10,500 workers are employed there).

Earlier this week, workers went on strike at the said field and even blocked a local highway in protest against poor labor conditions amid the unfolding epidemic.

Then the head of Yakutia, Aisen Nikolaev, hastened to report that tests were carried out on 10,500 employees, but the results were still unknown.  Well, now they have been made public...

So the question arises: what is the real situation about the coronavirus, not just on the scale of a separate Gazprom facility but across the Republic of Sakha given the massive efforts to conceal the actual situation?  And, of course, how are things really going throughout Russia in general?
