Khabib Nurmagomedov's fellow villagers report about mass pneumonia

Over 500 villagers have suffered from viral pneumonia; 11 of them died, said the head of the village of Kirovaul in the Kizilyurt District, where the family of a Dagestan mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov lives.

Most of the villagers who fell ill with viral infection and pneumonia were not included into the statistics, Ali, a resident of Kirovaul, told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent.

"Most patients (who fell ill and recovered) were not registered. My whole family got sick. Children stayed at home, and they quickly recovered," Ali has explained.

The villagers raised money, bought the necessary medicines and spread them among the families with sick members, said the villager. According to his story, natives from the village helped with medicines and money.

The situation with viral pneumonia has stabilized, Ilyas Khaziev, the head of the rural settlement of Kirovaul, told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent. "A lot of villagers were sick. A lot of relatives of Khabib Nurmagomedov were also sick," he said. According to his data, out of the total number of villagers, more than 500 had fallen ill; 11 persons died.
