In the area of the Joint Forces Operation on October 20, two facts of violation of the ceasefire by the Russian occupation forces were recorded, - the JFO headquarters reported. The enemy used small arms in the area of responsibility of the North tactical force near the settlements of Svitlodarsk and Mayorsk. The enemy shots posed no threat to life and health, so our soldiers did not open fire in response. There are no combat losses or injuries among the Ukrainian defenders.
114 cases of COVID-19 were discovered in the occupied territory of Donetsk oblast over the past day. This was reported by the fake "DNR Ministry of Health". In total, 5392 confirmed cases of COVID-19 infection, of which 367 were fatal, were reported as of October 19. 212 cases of pneumonia were also detected over the day (the occupation authorities do not classify them as coronavirus infection - OstroV), of which 119 patients were hospitalized. "A total of 1987 patients with pneumonia are being treated, of which 381 are on oxygen support (+54 over the day)", - the occupiers wrote.
The statistics on COVID-19, published by the "fake ministries of health of the republics" in the occupied territory of Donbas, and the real ones may be substantially different. This was stated by Commissioner of the Verkhovna Rada for Human Rights Lyudmyla Denisova in her Telegram channel. She recalled that according to the information of the occupiers, the total number of people with coronavirus infection in the territory of CADLO is more than 6700 people. According to her, in addition to coronavirus infection, pneumonia and ARVI are common diagnoses. So, it is known about 3058 registered cases of pneumonia. Of these, 73 were fatal. Denisova noted that according to unofficial data provided by human rights activists, the total number of cases of COVID-19 in the temporarily occupied territories can be significantly underestimated and, in fact, be at least 14 thousand.
Filling potholes in occupied Donetsk is carried out with a "strange" mixture. Residents wrote this in social networks. In particular, they are discussing the repair of the road in the Kalininskyi district near the Niva hotel. "Treatment of asphalt with mud", - a resident of the city wrote, having posted the relevant photos. "I saw how this "asphalt" was laid. There is some strange composition of it: stones and slurry of uncertain origin", - the resident wrote. Users also note that a similar situation was with road repairs in other occupied cities of the oblast. "They have already forgotten in Snizhne, and some do not remember, what the asphalt is", - the residents of the occupied Donetsk region sadly noted.
A fatal road accident occurred in occupied Donetsk. This was reported by the fake "DNR Ministry of Emergency Situations". The accident happened at the intersection of the streets Dagestanska and Bakhrushyn in the Kirovskyi district. A 29-year-old driver died as a result of the collision of a VAZ-2110 car with a tree. The body of the deceased was released with hydraulic tools and handed over to the "DNR MIA".
