Russia’s registered Covid-19 cases surpass 10m



The number of registered Covid-19 cases in Russia now exceeds 10 million, data from the government’s coronavirus taskforce showed, but the latest wave of the pandemic has lost its momentum and the number of deaths is declining.

The number of daily infections and the death toll have both been on the decline recently after Russia recorded its deadliest month of the pandemic so far in October, according to Reuters calculations.

The country reported 29,929 new Covid-19 infections in the last 24 hours, its lowest single-day case tally since Oct 13, taking the headline official number of infections since the start of the pandemic to 10,016,896.—AP
