Russia is a coronavirus hotspot, with over 700 deaths every day since early July, despite a 10% decline in the global toll and a 12 percent drop in infections in a week.

With 203,900 deaths last week, the 146 million-strong nation surpassed Peru to take fifth place in the globe, a 4% increase and second only to the United States with 11,268 deaths. Cases totaled 7,240,913 with an increase of 143,661 or 8%, ranking fifth globally.

According to, the death toll was 4,760,883 and the number of patients was 232,549,204 as of Sunday. With 706,299 deaths and 43,745,886 cases, the United States continues to lead the world.

On July 5, Russia’s death toll fell below 700 for the first time, with 654. Until July, the previous high was 635, which will be broken on December 24, 2020.

Russia set a new record with 828 on Friday, followed by 822 on Saturday and 805 on Sunday, making it the sixth day in a row with 800 or more. Cases increased by 22,498 to a new high of 29,935 on December 24.

Hospitalizations increased 15% in a week, according to Moscow’s Covid response center.

According to the Moscow Times, Rospotrebnadzor, which oversees nationwide operations against the coronavirus, has warned of a “severe” increase in new cases in 36 of Russia’s 85 regions.

The Kremlin, on the other hand, stated on Thursday that it was not considering reintroducing restrictions across the board.

According to Mozhem Obyasnit, an investigative outlet that previously functioned as Open Media before authorities deemed it a “foreign agency” and shut its website, at least six regions began imposing limitations on Sunday.

After numerous members of his entourage tested positive for COVID-19, Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has been vaccinated, was placed in self-isolation as a precautionary measure.

Only 32.3 percent of Russia’s population has received a single vaccination shot. Sputnik 5 is one of the vaccinations that the country administers on its own.

According to Bloomberg tracking, vaccination doses increased by 200 million in one week to 6.12 billion, with a global population of 7.9 billion.

According to The New York Times’ tracking, Russia is part of Europe, which leads the vaccine effort with 105 doses provided per 100 people, followed by North America at 102, South America at 99, Asia at 88, Oceania at 77, and Africa at 10. Most immunizations require two shots, with boosters thrown in for good measure.

In Europe, mortality climbed by 4%, while cases grew by 2%. Article Summary from Nokia News
