Hundreds of medical workers in Minsk and many other cities on Thursday joined the demonstrations against re-election of Belarus leader Alexander Lukashenko.

The unprecedented public opposition and unrest has been driven by the painful economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic and Lukashenko's swaggering dismissal of the outbreak as a psychosis. In Minsk and the western city of Baranovichi, people ran over traffic police with their vehicles on Wednesday before being detained. The ministry said 103 police officers had been injured since Sunday, and 28 of them were hospitalized.
