The entire world has come to a standstill thanks to the rapid spread of the coronavirus.
The pandemic has caused global panic and many countries have implemented lockdowns in a bid to prevent further contamination.
But the President of Belarus has other ideas, so keep scrolling to hear his bizarre theory…
In a last-ditch effort to slow down the spread of the deadly COVID-19 virus, countries and major cities all over the world have gone into full lockdown.
And now, nearly 828,165 people globally have been infected with the virus and a further 40,731 people have tragically died.
While medical researchers work tirelessly to find a vaccine, regular people have been urged to avoid any form of social interaction and contact as best they can.
Person-to-person contact is thought to be the main method of transmission for the virus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – Through sneezing and coughing, primarily.
And millions are now quarantining themselves at home for months at a time.

And he even had a game himself alongside the nation’s football matches going forward as normal.
Hundreds of other countries have postponed all sporting events and mass gatherings, so it seems that Belarus isn’t jumping on the bandwagon.
He declared that the sport “is the best anti-virus remedy.”
Sky News reported that weeks ago he suggested that Belarusians should drink 50ml of vodka a day to ward off the virus, but not at work – advice that is completely at odds with recommendations from the World Health Organisation.
But, of course, these remedies aren’t at all proven to prevent the coronavirus.
According to the Belarusian Telegraph Agency, the president also said, “We are not canceling anything. We will host all the events we have planned … Let God protect us from the coronavirus.”
And only 1 person is reported to have died so far.
This doesn’t at all mean that they will stay this way, and President Lukashenko needs to be extremely cautious of his next moves in regards to the coronavirus pandemic.
