Belarus Cancels Compulsory Face Diapers Days After Lukashenko’s Public Dressing Down of Health Minister
The compulsion had existed for two weeks
The Ministry of Health of Belarus on Friday canceled the mandatory mask regime introduced on October 9 amid an increase in the number of cases of coronavirus infection.
“The requirement for the obligatory use of personal protective equipment by individuals when visiting objects, organizations, [using] automobiles, with the exception of personal cars, air, water, rail transport, including the subway, has been eliminated,” the Ministry of Health said. The corresponding resolution of the department was published on the national legal Internet portal , it entered into force on October 22.
The face diaper compulsion had nominally been in place for two weeks, since October 9. It isn’t clear if fines were ever levied for non-compliance:
MINSK, 8 October (BelTA) – People will be required to wear face masks and maintain physical distance in public places as from 9 October, BelTA learned from Belarusian Deputy Healthcare Minister, Chief Sanitary Inspector Aleksandr Tarasenko.
We are going to initially check how corporations and individuals observe these rules. We are going to convince the population to maintain distance and wear medical masks or gauze bandages. Other measures may be employed later on. We are not talking about fines for now,” Aleksandr Tarasenko noted.
It is bad (and worrying) that a COVID religion ritual had ever been made compulsory in this manner, but at least that is over with now. The reversal at the Health Ministry follows a government meeting earlier this week in which Lukashenko publicly humiliated the Interior and Health ministers for their imposition of virus cult idiocy on the people.
Meanwhile, Moscow promises a crackdown for the glory of the cult:
Passengers with a lowered mask in Moscow transport will be fined
MOSCOW, October 18. / TASS /. Inspectors in Moscow public transport will be forced to issue an offense order to the passenger in the absence of a mask or if it does not cover the respiratory system. This was reported to TASS on Monday by the head of the State Public Institution “Organizer of Transportation” Vladislav Sultanov.
“The mask protects when it is put on correctly – it completely covers the nose and mouth. Today, in the metro, almost all passengers come in masks. But we can observe that passing the control line at the turnstiles, in the subway cars, some people put the mask on their chin or take it off. write out a decision on an offense if the mask is missing or does not cover the respiratory organs, “Sultanov said.
The contrast couldn’t be greater. Two Rusian states, one free, one with a government captured by the virus cult.
