In Russia: 1,000 persons succumb to Covid within 24 hours

One thousand persons who had tested positive for Covid-19 have died in Russia in just one day, between yesterday and today.

This is the highest ever number of deaths from Covid-19 registered in one day in Russia since the start of the Covid pandemic.

In recent days Russia witnessed an increase in Covid-19 deaths. The Kremlin is blaming Russian citizens who are refusing to get vaccinated against the virus because they are scared.

It is estimated that just one-third of the country’s population has been vaccinated against Covid so far.

Some 222,000 persons have died in Russia when positive with Covid-19. This is the highest rate of deaths in the European continent.
