5278 cases of COVID-19 were registered in the occupied territory of Donetsk oblast as of the morning of October 19. This is reported by the fake "DNR Ministry of Health".
According to its statistics, there are 349 deaths from coronavirus in the "DNR". Thus, the mortality rate is 6.61%, which is significantly - three times - higher than the same indicator in the controlled Ukrainian territory.
It is also reported that 160 cases of pneumonia were detected over the past day. A total of 1983 patients with pneumonia are being treated, of which 371 are on oxygen support (+52 over the day).
As previously reported, occupation authorities of the "DNR" began to report a mass disease with "pneumonia", allegedly not related to COVID-19.
