Russian public health authority can't explain why it's published the same exact coronavirus test count for three days straight
On April 2, Russia’s Federal Service for Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare (Rospotrebnadzor) reported that more than 536,000 tests for the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 have been conducted throughout the country since the pandemic began.
The day before, Rospotrebnadzor posted the exact same number: the agency’s daily bulletin for April 1 indicated a total test count of 536,669. The day before, on March 31, that number was also 536,669.
“I can’t explain this yet,” an agency representative told Meduza. The previous day, a representative said the same number had been published twice in a row due to a technical error.
On March 30, Rospotrebnadzor reported that about 344,000 coronavirus tests had been conducted in Russia.
