Sakhalin resident punished for fake about coronavirus
According to the press service of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs for the Sakhalin Region, in one of the popular messengers, a resident of the village said that two patients in serious condition were hospitalized in the city of Nevelsk. In addition, the audio message clarified that patients were diagnosed with coronavirus. As the author of the fake reported, she allegedly received information from friends from the city administration.
