The truth is distorted on the number of people rehabilitated and treated in sanatoriums of Crimea in 2015. This was stated by Director of the Russian Research Centre of Medical Rehabilitation and Balneology of the Ministry of Health of the RF Maria Gerasimenko.
According to her, records show that Crimean resorts admitted 235 thousand people, while only 123 thousand were discharged.
“Where is 50%? Patients arrive and stay forever? Or they do vanishing acts?” asked the Director of the Centre.
Previously experts of the resort and tourism industry repeatedly pointed out that the official data of the Crimean “authorities” about the number of holidaymakers on the peninsula was significantly overstated.
