Belarus President says he had asymptomatic COVID-19

Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said that he had COVID-19 without any symptoms and had already recovered from it.

“Today you are meeting a man who managed to survive the coronavirus on his feet. This is what doctors concluded yesterday. Asymptomatic,” Lukashenko said during a meeting with the military.

The claims come just a matter of days before presidential elections.

“As I have said, 97% of our population is carrying this infection asymptomatically. Thank God that I have managed to get into this cohort of the asymptomatic,” he added.

Belarus has registered 67,366 coronavirus infections with 543 deaths.
