За сутки в Беларуси зарегистрировано 1967 пациентов с COVID-19, выписано 2314 человек, сообщает Минздрав.
С начала пандемии в Беларуси было зарегистрировано 219 663 человека с положительным тестом на COVID-19. Выздоровели 202 446 пациентов, у которых ранее был подтвержден диагноз COVID-19.
За весь период распространения инфекции на территории страны умерло 1554 пациента с выявленной коронавирусной инфекцией. Десять — за последние сутки.
За минувшие сутки выполнено 24 668 тестов (почти 8% положительные). Всего в стране проведено 4 191 207 тестов.
Глава белорусского Минздрава Дмитрий Пиневич сообщил, что заболеваемость коронавирусом в Беларуси продолжает снижаться. Больницы страны постепенно возвращаются к обычному режиму работы. Например, в Минске к обычному режиму работы возвращается 2-й родильный дом. Поэтапно к работе по своему профилю переходит Республиканская клиническая больница медицинской реабилитации (Аксаковщина).
По прогнозам, до середины — конца февраля будет падение уровня заболеваемости коронавирусной инфекцией, затем, возможно, небольшой рост, связанный с приходом обычных эпидемических заболеваний, в частности гриппа. Однако высокая интенсивность уровня COVID-19 продлится до конца весны.
Dancing On Ice pro Yebin Mok has said she's 'absolutely gutted' to be missing the first few weeks of the competition after a 'freak accident' in training.
The skater, 34, who was set to perform with Olympic skier Graham Bell, lacerated her leg on Monday and is now undergoing physio after having an operation.
Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, Yebin appeared to be in good spirits as she said she'll be cheering for her partner 'like a nervous mom at the side of the rink' when he competes with her replacement Karina Mantra.
Yebin penned: 'Absolutely gutted I won’t be able to skate on @dancingonice with Graham these couple of weeks.
'Graham and I had a freak accident during our practice on Monday where his blade went into my shin.
'Such unlucky timing but also counting my lucky stars as I cut through the muscles, and not nerves, bone, vessels or tendons! How I didn’t cut any of that they say is a miracle.'
The professional skater continued: 'Just insanely bummed about not being able to showcase Graham’s amazing journey together after such long hard months of training, but I know he’s in great hands with @karinamanta to step in until I can get back on the ice, and I know he’s a fighter so he will do all he can to do his very best!
'Continue to vote for @skigraham and Karina! I’ll just be a nervous mom at the side of the rink with multiple devices to vote for them!'
Turning her attentions to recovery, Yebin added: 'I’ll do my very best to heal and recover as quickly as I can with our physio, Sharon who is the best of the best, and if anyone can get me on the ice, it’s her!
'And I’ll be ready to skate with Graham if the fate allows it, so keep voting for him and here’s to hoping for the best on this unexpected bumpy road.'
Yebin's injury means Graham will make his skating debut next Sunday instead of this weekend with a new partner Karina, and comedian Rufus Hound's first performance will be brought forward to take his place.
Speaking after the injury, Graham told MailOnline: 'I fell when we were training on Monday and Yebin my pro-dance partner fell onto the back of my skate.
'She was cut quite badly on the shin and needed an operation to clean and stitch up the wound. She spent Monday night in Watford hospital and was released yesterday, luckily there was no nerve or tendon damage.
'She has been told two to four weeks before she can skate again, so Dancing on Ice have organised for a replacement, Karina Mantra, to come in for the first few performances.
'It's going to be really tough learning our routines again with someone new, but Yebin will be on hand to coach us both. It is now a massive incentive for me to stay in the show so that I can get Yebin back on the ice!'
Dancing On Ice hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield made the announcement during Wednesday's This Morning.
Holly said: 'This week Graham Bell and his partner Yebin had a freak accident which resulted in her having a laceration on her leg.'
The presenting duo added that they had a Zoom meeting with Yebin following the accident and got a glimpse of the nasty injury, which they couldn't show on air.
Holly confessed she couldn't even look at the injury, and squirmed as Phillip described the details.
He said: 'We had a Zoom meeting yesterday with the team and they showed us a picture that we can not show you on TV.
'Holly couldn't even look at it, she had to look away - and it was a very nasty stab wound from an ice blade. You could see the tendons, it's a very dangerous show.'
It was then announced that due to the accident Graham would not take part in the first live show, which was set to see the first six couples make their skating debut.
Instead Rufus and his professional partner Robin Johnstone will perform during the live launch show on Sunday, and Graham will skate the following week with Karina.
Phillip added that Yebin will be out of the show for 'quite a few weeks' while she recovers.
ITV later confirmed that Yebin received 'immediate medical attention' and is now recovering at home.
The news comes just days before the new series of Dancing On Ice is set to begin, with Jason Donavon, Joe Warren-Plant, Denise Van Outen, Rebekah Vardy and Lady Leshurr joining Rufus making their skating debut.
It also comes just hours after it was reported that bosses were tightening restrictions after learning five crew members had tested positive for COVID-19.
According to reports, show bosses are set to introduce stricter restrictions on set as a result of the outbreak so that the show can open as planned on Sunday night.
It was also claimed that crew members behind the scenes are concerned about others contracting COVID-19, but they are taking every precaution to ensure this doesn't happen.
A source speaking to The Sun claimed: 'More than five members of production are isolating because of Covid right now — it's become a nightmare.'
The insider went on to say that stars have been urged to remain cautious after the virus hit several members of production, as they added: 'They're now enforcing even stricter regulations.
'But while there are concerns about further people having to isolate, bosses are confident they have put all the precautions in place to safely be able to get the show on air.'
A spokesperson for the show told MailOnline: 'The welfare of everyone who works on Dancing On Ice is our first priority.
'We have had a robust set of measures in place ever since work on the series commenced in order to operate safely within Covid-19 guidelines and to ensure the wellbeing of everyone connected with the production.'
The new series of Dancing On Ice will see the judges protected by perspex screens and no studio audience amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Images of the ITV show's studios revealed large screens have been placed in front of the judges chairs to shield Ashley Banjo, John Barrowman, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean.
For the first time in its history the studio at Bovingdon Airfield in Hertfordshire will have no audience, a move mirroring that of Strictly Come Dancing.
The skating celebrities will also watch each other perform from socially-distanced tables to keep everyone safe from COVID-19.
EastEnders' explosive new trailer has revealed the moment Sharon Watts takes the final steps in her attempt to murder husband Ian Beale.
It was recently revealed that Sharon (Letitia Dean) and ex Phil Mitchell were behind Ian's attack last year after discovering that the businessman played a part in the death of her beloved son Denny, with Sharon slowly poisoning Ian ever since.
But the dramatic teaser hints that she'll step things up a gear and try to bump Ian (Adam Woodyatt) off once and for all after Phil (Steve McFadden) insisted to her that he 'has to pay', but has Ian cottoned on to her devious plan?
With Ian's mum Kathy (Gillian Taylforth) begging Sharon to help her son amid his ailing health, little does she know that Sharon is plotting his untimely demise.
The trailer begins with Sharon replaying the voicemail her son Denny sent her shortly before her death, with a poorly Ian then calling out to his so-called devoted wife.
Still enraged over the loss of his adoptive Denny, Phil was later seen telling Sharon: 'Ian took our son away, he has to pay!'
And sure enough, Sharon takes her plan to kill Ian up a notch as she sinisterly tells him: 'Lets make it a night to remember' as she lays on a romantic dinner.
But just as she lays down a plate of poisoned garlic bread, Ian looks up at her suspiciously - has he rumbled her plan?
After all, recent spoilers teased that a mystery person listened in on an incriminatory phone call made by Sharon, before relaying the news back to Ian.
It remains to be seen whether Sharon can follow through with her shocking plan.
Meanwhile, the trailer also reveals further drama for the Carters, in the wake of the revelation that care home worker Katy Lewis abused Mick Carter when he was just 12 years old.
But just as Mick hopes to forget his past, Frankie is seen asking him more difficult questions, with Mick attempting to put her off.
However, he's later seen admitting to wife Linda: 'I can't change what's happened in the past, but she's a part of me.'
Elsewhere, there's a violent confrontation between Ash Panesar and her mum Suki, while Jay Brown reveals his true feelings for Honey Mitchell.
EastEnders continues Friday at 8.40pm on BBC One.
Inter Miami owner David Beckham showed he still has a trick or two up his sleeve during a kick-about with the club's academy stars on Thursday afternoon.
The 45-year-old, who retired as a professional player in 2013, laced up his boots again to impart some wisdom on the younger players at the club while also managing a cheeky nutmeg during the session.
In a clip of the session, Beckham was seen scoring a goal with a nutmeg before realising the moment was filmed by pointing and laughing at the camera.
While being nutmegged is usually a moment to forget for any footballer, the young recipient won't be wiping it from his memory any time soon given that it was a Manchester United and Real Madrid legend doing the damage.
Beckham joined the academy players from the impromptu session at the club's training center, where he took part in a number of drills and competitions, according to the club's official website.
It was also the first time Beckham has been at the club's facilities since the beginning of the 2020 season due to the pandemic.
During the session, Beckham also showcased the skills that made him one of the world's best midfielders, showing the players in attendance that he certainly still has it.
And while Beckham continues to keep himself fit on the training field, it will be his work off it that could take the MLS side to the next level.
England Women's boss Phil Neville has been linked with the managerial role at Inter Miami in recent weeks and is said to be the man Beckham wants in the hotseat.
And while a reunion with close friend and former team-mate Neville is on the cards, another United-link could emerge in the form of Odion Ighalo.
The 31-year-old will see his loan at United from Shanghai Shenhua expire at the end of the season and has revealed he is open to the prospect of joining Beckham at Inter Miami.
Ighalo has proven he still has capabilities in front of goal with five strikes to his name in the second half of the 2020-19 campaign, despite being deployed from the substitutes bench.
And now Ighalo, who will return to his parent club but has no long-term plans to remain in China, is hoping his exploits can land him a switch to Major League Soccer, which he says he has been watching with a keen eye.
Ighalo told ESPN: 'I have been watching MLS and the league is doing well and I would like to play in the MLS.
'I have to wait for offers and if the opportunity arises, I will take it because the league is doing well and it is a good life and I would love it.
'Lots of players go there. Even Gonzalo Higuain from Juventus is there, also Giovanni dos Santos. Why not? I would like to go there if an opportunity arises.
'Being an experienced player, going there, doing well. It is an opportunity if it comes for me. The David Beckham club [Inter Miami] is growing, so if an opportunity arises why not?' he added.
