The Belarusian leader also criticized self-isolation measures in his own apartment. According to him, “this was not the case in the war when people faced death.” According to Lukashenko, without self-isolation, people could carry the virus on their feet, and instead they infect households. “I know that this is possible, and let at least one doctor say that I have no right,” Lukashenko said.
He noted that it is not a problem to introduce measures for self-isolation in Minsk, however, the consequences may be negative. “We will only snatch people from the apartments who will be heavy, and immediately send them to the artificial lung ventilation. And what, will we save these people? Of course not. Therefore, you don’t have to do nonsense, ”he added.

March 17, commenting on the situation with coronavirus, Lukashenko offered wash hands more often, have breakfast, lunch and dinner on time, and also go to the bathhouse and drink vodka for prevention.
