Leading Russian pediatric surgeon: The coronavirus situation is a rehearsal for biological war

23.03.2020, Moscow.

The global spreading of the coronavirus is a rehearsal for biological war, the President of the National Medical Chamber Leonid Roshal said on March 23 on the air of the Russia 24 TV channel.

“In fact, what we have today is a rehearsal for biological war. We mean only this, not nuclear war or terrorism. The point is to what extent the global public health system is prepared for this, and to what extent we are prepared. We must have some reasonable sufficiency,” Dr. Roshal said.

He noted that, in view of what is happening, it is becoming clear that the recent “optimization” of the Russian public health system, which reduced the number of health professionals and decreased hospital capacities, was not quite successful.

Roshal stressed that measures must be taken to improve the national public health system, focusing on providing regions with essential supplies for prompt and professional medical aid.
