In the Amur region, criminal cases were opened after the deaths of patients with coronavirus. Three cases are currently being investigated related to claims made by their relatives.

According to Stanislav Belyansky, head of the Investigative Department of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation for the Amur Region, investigators are checking the completeness of medical care for patients with COVID-19, conducting examinations.

According to him, it is difficult to conduct investigations, since the standards for providing medical care often change, especially during the pandemic. In the Amur Region, 134 people died from the coronavirus, a total of 18 residents were infected.

This year, in Blagoveshchensk, the AmurMET laboratory was fined 200 thousand rubles for issuing false positive tests for coronavirus. The specialists also violated the biological safety requirements when working with the samples.

Moreover, this is already the second case of violation of the rules for working with analyzes for coronavirus and massive false-positive results in Blagoveshchensk. Another laboratory - "LabOst" - received in December 2020 a punishment in the form of suspension of activities for 60 days.
