Number of Corona Cases in Russia Passes 600,000
Russia registered 7176 new infections with the coronavirus on Wednesday.
This brings the total to 606,881, the third-highest number of infections in the world. On Tuesday, the number of new infections was 7425.
The Russian coronavirus crisis centre further reported that 154 people died of Covid-19 in the last 24 hours, more than the day before.
The official death toll is thus 8513.
Critics have doubts about the relatively low official death rate in Russia and accused the authorities of downplaying the magnitude of the crisis.
