“No, the virus exists, it represents a significant danger, even though many of my friends believe that had coronavirus on the go. This does not mean that I had contact with sick and I need to put in the infectious diseases hospital, if only because I don’t have any symptoms of the coronavirus, the slightest (PAH-PAH-PAH, of course) – no runny nose, no cough, no high temperature, which I measured, of course, every day,” – said Belkovsky.
