President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko visited the coronavirus hospital. In one of the wards, he helped an elderly woman drink water from a bottle. However, the patient did not recognize him.
The video was published by the Telegram channel "Sputnik Near Abroad".
Lukashenko promised his grandmother to talk to her when she recovers.
Do you want a drink? Let us help you. You are calm! Drink, drink! Drink water. Lie down, lie down. All right, I shake your hand. Get well, look! Then call me. I will definitely answer! - said Lukashenka.
After the woman asked who to call her, the president realized that she was talking to him without knowing who he was.
Earlier, Alexander Lukashenko said that Belarus could start producing its own vaccine against coronavirus. He also noted that Minsk is considering options for producing a Russian drug or purchasing it for vaccination of citizens at risk. The President did not rule out an option in which Belarus can go along all these three paths, NEWS.ru wrote.
