The Number of Coronavirus Deaths in Russia Exceeds 900 per Day for the First Time



For the first time during the pandemic, Russia's daily toll of coronavirus deaths surpassed 900 for the first time on Wednesday, a record that comes despite the country's low vaccination rate and the government's reluctance to impose strict restrictions to keep the disease under control.


According to Russia's state coronavirus task force, 929 new deaths occurred on Wednesday, marking the fourth time in as many days that daily COVID-19 deaths reached record levels. The previous record, which stood at 895 deaths, was set on February 2.


A total of 25,133 new confirmed cases were reported by the task force on Wednesday.


The increase in infections and deaths began in late September and has continued to this day. The Kremlin has attributed the outbreak to a lack of vaccination among Russians. The coronavirus vaccine had been administered to nearly 33 percent of Russia's 146 million people as of Tuesday, with 29 percent of the population having received the full course of vaccination.


Despite the spike in cases, government officials rejected the idea of imposing a lockdown and stated that regional authorities would take steps to prevent the virus from spreading further.


A number of Russian regions have restricted attendance at large public events and access to theaters, restaurants, and other places to people who have been vaccinated, who have recently recovered from COVID-19, or who have tested negative in the previous 72 hours, as well as people who have recently recovered from COVID-19.


In total, Russia's coronavirus task force has reported more than 7.6 million confirmed cases and more than 212,000 deaths, according to the most recent figures. However, reports by the Russian state statistical service Rosstat, which tally coronavirus-related deaths retroactively, reveal significantly higher mortality rates than previously thought.
