Member of the Board of YAP, Afsun Sujayev: The most successful results on coronavirus have been recorded in Azerbaijan

"If we compare the statistics of those infected and those who died with other countries, we see that the most successful results have been recorded in Azerbaijan."

Member of the Board of the New Azerbaijan Party (YAP), executive director of the Institute of Chemistry of Additives of the Academy of Sciences, Doctor of Chemical Sciences, Associate Professor Afsun Sujayev said this in a statement to the Azerbaijan newspaper.

Fakt Yoxla examined whether Afsun Sujayev's claim was true.

According to the data on the platform Ourworldindata.org, which collects statistics on all countries related to the coronavirus, at present, the number of infections per 1 million people in Azerbaijan is 36,295. The number of deaths per 1 million people is 508. As for the world average, the number of infections per 1 million people is 26,590, and the number of deaths per 1 million people is 559. In this regard, the results in Azerbaijan are higher than the world average in terms of the number of infections and relatively low in terms of the number of deaths.

As can be seen, Azerbaijan ranks 114th in terms of the number of people who were infected with the virus and 105th in terms of the number of people who died of the virus.

Fakt Yoxla concludes that Afsun Sujayev's claim is a Lie.
