"Reporters Without Borders" said that any mention of coronavirus is prohibited in Turkmenistan

75

The RSF (Reporters Without Borders) international organization stated that the Turkmen authorities have decided on a "ban on reporting on the topic of coronavirus." The organization claims that in the state media of the republic, references to the epidemic are prohibited, so as not to create panic among the population. "Talk about coronavirus on the streets and in other public places is forbidden."


In addition, it is alleged that the police, which “patrols the streets in civilian clothes,” ensure that people do not use personal protective equipment - medical masks.

The statement said that the fact that he came out with a medical mask on his face allegedly faces arrest.

There is no official evidence that this is the case in Turkmenistan. However, it is really impossible to see a flurry of reports, stories and programs on state television, where from morning till night tirelessly repeats about the coronavirus and that quarantine or self-isolation must be respected.

Here we need to focus on the Turkmen situation, when there were extremely few people on the streets of large cities of the republic and before the media surge in coronavirus infection compared to cities in other countries, even neighboring Turkmenistan. In addition, it is worth noting that Turkmenistan has always been distinguished, to put it mildly, by its special socio-political life and approach to the coverage of various events on an international scale.

      People on the Web advise: a yellow suit, similar to the one worn by VVP in Kommunarka, is for sale. The price is 12 thousand. I bought it, wrote "Yandex food" on my back in red, and go wherever you want and as much as you want. Expensive, however, pleasure.

          And then say do not say, the words statistics will not change. The elderly themselves must understand that they are at risk. With ordinary flu, mortality among the elderly is not much lower than with coronovirus.

                    Old people have it too. The vast majority is 80-90%. And 20% is difficult for both young and old and without resuscitation, they die the same way. They simply turn off their lungs and a 40-year-old suffocates just like a 70-year-old. Design these 20% per 100.000 infected and get the final result.
                    In addition to those who survive, very many have destroyed their lungs and become virtually disabled

                    According to Vedernikov, a 45-year-old woman died, who was connected to an ECMO device (to saturate the blood with oxygen). She was diagnosed with lung disease before being infected with coronavirus.

                    There are no fresh statistics.

                        The key fact is the story that the virus only hits the elderly. It hits everyone, old and young, and without adequate treatment, the young die as easily as the old.

          All of us have their own term, sooner or later we will die. With regards to me, I almost no longer have them. And those who are old themselves should think (to isolate themselves), and not me with a stick under house arrest without trial without charges. This is worse than the triples of the Soviet period that our government hated so much. It is simply illegal!

            As practice (and my personal observations) shows, 80% of people (and the older generation too) do not know how to think independently. And for the thought process, they often give out their own Wishlist, thinkers and ambitions. Which are almost always, very far from reality.

    There is the president of "Turkmenbashi", a dentist by profession. He made a "dental office" out of the country, they fear him as a doctor with a drill in his hands.
    Such a cult of personality, the world has not seen. And what is surprising, the West does not touch him, and does not even notice. They live for themselves, and live.

So, half of them believe that in Ukraine, everything is in order. The main thing is independence, visa-free travel, the clown president and Maidan democracy, and the rest is the Kremlin’s machinations.

              Oh well. And chat with the settlers from there. I talked with the Russian-speaking, left by hook or by crook, as a result of bribes. According to normal, leave without options. And their words - in the coffin they saw such a state and its “care”.

      Something is not impressive. He shot from a gun five times, hit three. From a sitting position, at a distance of 20 meters.
      And he tried to get behind the wheel of a helicopter. He sat in the place of the second pilot.

    "Our wise ancestors firmly followed the tradition of fumigating harmala during important events, whether it be moving to a new home, getting married, or when at certain times of the year when infectious diseases arose."
    Can the "shamanic" herb really help?
    By the way, Turkmenistan borders on Iran.

    Reporters Without Borders
    - the most truthful source of information.
    The President of Turkmenistan at a government meeting recommended that citizens defend themselves against viruses with an old folk remedy - garmala smoke, local television reported Friday.
    Turkmens widely use smoke-fouling harmalas, according to popular beliefs, it protects against diseases.

    But Turkmenistan is Turkmenistan.
    A unique case was recorded by the Ministry of Health of Turkmenistan. The first and only horse in the world to suffer from the 2019-nCoV coronavirus, an Akhal-Teke nicknamed Almaz, was miraculously healed after President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov rode on it. ... "This is incredible, but we were not at all surprised by this miracle. Dear Serdar Gurbanguly Myalikgulievich Berdimuhamedov, it was not without reason that he became the youngest doctor of medicine in the country at only 16 years old. We have already received dozens of petitions from the residents of Chinese Wuhan, so that the distinguished president will ride on them. Unfortunately, in his work schedule there is hardly time for all the suffering, however, we sent to China, as humanitarian aid, 6000 copies of the book “Akhal-Teke is our pride and glory” with the signature of a serdar to overcome the epidemic, ”the presidential spokesman said Emomali Gurbanzoltanov.

    Well, what is it? They have no economy, no medicine either. Therefore, neither quarantines nor anti-epidemic measures are needed. And the panic is really superfluous in this situation.

    Turkmen authorities have decided on a "ban on reporting on the theme of coronavirus." The organization claims that in the state media of the republic, references to the epidemic are prohibited, so as not to create panic among the population. "Talk about coronavirus on the streets and in other public places is prohibited."

    It's like hiding from a maniac with an ax under the covers.

    That's something, but I’m not worried about Turkmenistan at all!
    Not because I don’t feel sorry for them, but for the simple reason that they will have an iron curtain that will be "more welcome" than the North Korean one.
    Tourists are not allowed into Turkmenistan, and if they are allowed, it is extremely difficult to obtain permission; men under 40 are not allowed to leave Turkmenistan, in principle, so that they would not lose a return ticket.
    So there is a hope that at least this country will be bypassed by the "crown", besides, "Bashi" or whoever they have, will not blink an eye to burn all the Turkmen returning home who risk violating the quarantine (even officials) , and the urns with the ashes will be flooded with a ten-meter layer of concrete just in case.

      A case from one's life. Our employees (10 years ago) constantly traveled to Turkmenistan on business trips to service gas compressor stations. They travel in a local suburban bus, as they say, do not bother anyone. At some checkpoint, the police stop. (They don't give out weapons to the local police, but everyone has long sticks instead of clubs). They checked the documents, ours, who arrived on business as foreigners, were left alone, the rest were taken out of the bus and forcibly taken to cotton plantations, arbeiten. The motivation is simple. So far, the entire Turkmen people, sparing no effort, are building a "new Turkmen society" according to the behests of "Turkmen bashi", irresponsible persons, they travel around in buses, and on personal matters. Means idlers, a lot of personal time, disorder, it is necessary to work. I remember recently, they showed a propaganda video from "Turkmen bashi", what an earthly paradise in Turkmenistan is, so here at the forum, one "citizen", foaming at his mouth, argued that it was true, and that there really is heaven and grace. Better than Switzerland. laughing

    Not go around. They actively travel to overstock in some of the most infected countries. Emirates, Iran. They bring along Kuksi, spend the night somewhere in a warehouse, and behave inadequately.
    One thing is bad, besides the Turkmens, other people are stuck there.

    As far as I know, in the vast majority of patients under the age of 50, the course of the disease proceeds like normal flu.


    According to NTV, the program was recently, Dr. Light 28th. There the virologist said that the virus had already mutated and learned to infect people under 50 years old.

    First of all, authorities should think about the epidemic. And to load a person with horror stories means to make him a victim of depression. In which even a minor infection will be fatal for a person.

    If some gang calls itself, without borders, normal people call them lawless people.
