Corona explodes again in Russia, record increase in new cases; more than 900 dead

Russia's daily cases of coronavirus infection and the death toll hit record highs on Monday, amid a slow vaccination rate and the government's refusal to impose strict restrictions. Russia's official coronavirus task force reported that 29,409 new cases of infection were reported, the highest number of cases since the beginning of this year. And the epidemic cases in December are just short of a record high. On Monday, 957 more patients lost their lives due to this epidemic.

Russia already has the highest death toll in Europe, according to a government task force. More than 2,17,000 people have lost their lives due to this infection in the country. The increase in cases of infection and death started last month and the government has blamed the slow rate of vaccination.

Vaccination was also sluggish

Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova said on Friday that around 33 per cent of the country's population has received the first dose of the anti-Covid-19 vaccine and only about 29 per cent have received the full dose. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov expressed concern over the rise in infections and deaths, and said hospitals were full in some areas. "We have very low vaccination rates, that's why the death toll is so high," he told reporters.
