it is difficult to overstate how important this is. This man is the equivalent of Fauci in the US, or perhaps Dr. Deborah Birx. The 1.5 hour long interview below is only in Russian, but if you can understand it, it is well worth watching, because a lot of important information is covered.
The interviewer is Ksenia Sobchak, who is very liberal – think of her as like a Russian Rachel Maddow. Like liberals in the West, she very much wants to believe the COVID situation is much worse than it really is. Myasnikov explains to her in detail why it is in fact very difficult to assign ’cause of death’ in most cases, because there are usually several, in addition to a lot of other things.
It is a great interview, in which the good doctor finally loses his patience and tells her its not nearly as dangerous as people think, and that the whole world has over-reacted. He also insists that the death numbers in the West are way over-counted.
This interview is also a great example of the high level of journalism in Russia – this is much more genuine, open, exciting, and authentic than most of what is on mainstream media in the West. Just watch a few seconds of the intro, and you will get the idea.
