Belarus President Alexader Lukashenko is also one of those who has recovered from coronavirus. He made such a statement on 28 July, specifying the fact that he had an asymptomatic form of the disease.

The press service of the Healthcare Ministry reports, citing First Deputy Minister of Health Dmitry Pinevich, that more than 30% of all cases of coronavirus infections were in Minsk.

The minsitry doesn’t exclude the possibility of a second wave of COVID-19 but hopes that it won’t be so large-scale. According to Healthcare Minsiter Vladimir Karanik, there has been a steady positive trend in the country recently.

He noted that this applies both to the number of detected infections and the number of coronavirus cases complicated by pneumonia.  According to experts, the second wave in Belarus may begin in September.
