Government Hides Figures, to Claim Victory over Covid-19 in Nicaragua

Covid-19 underreporting maintained by Nicaragua’s Ministry of Health (MINSA) intends to artificially keep the fatality rate low, at the same time that it seeks to project a normal environment that serves to try to convince supporters of the Sandinista Front that it is safe to go to the plaza on July 19, to celebrate the 41 Anniversary of the Revolution, says epidemiologist Alvaro Ramirez.

The truth is that, while the Ministry of Health states that the number of infections and deaths is decreasing, each week, more than a hundred people die in hospitals due to Covid-19, while different medical associations begin to report the death of their members.

“On the fatality rate—which is now 4%—it was something that worried them and they quickly corrected it. On May 19 they released a report that jumped to 254 cases, in order to lower the case fatality rate, which was 32%. The highest in the world!”, said epidemiologist Alvaro Ramirez, when interviewed in the program “Esta Semana,” which is only broadcast online, due to the censorship of the Government of Daniel Ortega and Rosario Murillo.

“They became aware of the mathematical error they were making and decided to start correcting it, inflating the number of cases and reducing the number of deaths,” he amplified.

According to the weekly reports from MINSA, the number of new confirmed cases decreased from the 480 it was three weeks ago, to 359 a fortnight ago, to leave it at 346 last Tuesday.

The number of new deaths also falls week by week. If 21 days ago, 18 more deaths were officially reported than in the previous one, fifteen days ago only eleven deaths were added to the count, and last Tuesday only nine.
