On Wednesday, Russia recorded the highest daily death toll from the new Coronavirus, on its territory, reaching 135 deaths, bringing the total number of deaths in the country to nearly 3,000.
The total number of infections in Russia due to the Corona virus has exceeded 300,000, while the Covid-19 disease caused by the virus has recovered more than 85,000 people.
Russia has recorded significantly fewer deaths than reported by countries that have experienced a large outbreak of the epidemic, but observers have questioned the official death rate, accusing the authorities of not disclosing the true figures to reduce the scale of the crisis.
Russian health officials attribute the low number, compared to that recorded in the United States and parts of Europe, that Russia only counts deaths caused by the virus.
The authorities also indicate that Russia had more time to prepare a family in hospitals and launch a large-scale screening process to slow the outbreak of the virus, given that it arrived late compared to European countries and the United States.
The official total death toll was 2972, while the number of injuries reached 308 thousand and 705.
For the first time on Wednesday, the number of patients who recovered in Russia in the last 24 hours (9262) exceeded the number of those confirmed confirmed, while the number of injured people has now decreased by 633 cases.
The number of new infections reached 8,864, the lowest daily increase since May 1.
Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Michaustin returned to work on Tuesday, after being hospitalized for having Covid-19.
On Wednesday, Michelstein said the new Corona virus outbreak in Russia was entering a more stable phase, while he warned that restrictions should be removed with caution in the 17 regions allowed to take these steps.
