    Russia reports record daily COVID deaths
    Health authorities register 852 deaths on Tuesday as cases continue to rise amid low vaccine uptake rates.
    28 Sep 2021

    Russia has recorded its highest single-day coronavirus death toll during a surge in infections fuelled by the highly infectious Delta variant and a stuttering mass vaccination drive.

    On Tuesday, authorities reported 852 deaths in the preceding 24 hours. The previous record figure for a single day was 828 deaths, registered on September 24.

    Overall, Russia has recorded more than 205,000 COVID-19 deaths since the pandemic began, according to official figures.

    The tally represents the highest death toll in Europe and fifth-highest globally.

    There are now mounting concerns a fourth wave of infections is under way, weeks after millions of Russian students returned to schools and colleges.

    Since last Thursday, the state coronavirus task force has been reporting more than 21,000 new daily cases, up from an average of about 18,000 in mid-September.

    Authorities registered 21,559 new infections on Tuesday, down from the 22,236 reported on Monday.

    Despite the rising caseload, few nationwide public restrictions have been put in place. Russia had one, six-week lockdown early this year...

    It is disconcerting that the death toll in Russia has remained essentially flat at around 800/day since July. Afaik, that is unlike any other country, where the deaths have risen and fallen in waves.

      Correction, the toll in Russia is rising gradually, now closer to 900/day rather than 800. For a virus that is 'under control', it is inexplicably deadly.

        COVID-19 deaths in Russia hit record for third time this month

        MOSCOW -- Coronavirus deaths in Russia hit a record for the third time this month on Tuesday, and daily new infections once again exceeded 25,000 -- a surge that comes as vaccination rates in the country remain stagnantly low and the government shuns imposing tough restrictions to stem the spread.

        Russia's state coronavirus task force reported 25,110 new confirmed cases on Tuesday and 895 new deaths -- the country's highest daily death toll in the pandemic. The previous record, of 890 deaths, was registered on Sunday, and the one before that, of 887 deaths, occurred on Friday.

        The Kremlin has said that the situation elicits concern, but still it is not considering a countrywide lockdown or any other nationwide measures...

          Covid-19: Russia’s infections reach the highest level so far this year
          By: Associated Press | October 07, 2021 4:44 PM
          Despite surging infections, the Kremlin has shrugged off the idea of imposing a new nationwide lockdown, delegating the power to tighten restrictions to regional authorities.

          Russia’s daily coronavirus infections soared Thursday to their highest level so far this year as authorities have struggled to control a surge in new cases amid a slow pace in vaccinations and few restrictions in place.

          The daily coronavirus death toll topped 900 for a second straight day, with 924 new deaths reported Thursday — a day after reaching a record 929.

          Russia already has Europe’s highest death toll in the pandemic — topping 213,000 — and a conservative way of calculating the number suggests the actual number could be even higher.

          On Thursday, the government’s coronavirus task force reported 27,550 new confirmed cases, a nearly 10% rise from the previous day. New infections in Moscow soared by nearly 50% to 5,404 cases...

            Have to say that the ongoing rise in daily Covid deaths in Russia is disquieting.
            I assume that the regime is not deliberately boosting the reported toll numbers, but afaik, there is no other country with a similar sustained rise in mortality.
            Is there a new variant in Russia possibly?

              Russia records highest daily new Covid-19 case number
              Despite the mounting toll, the Kremlin has ruled out a new nationwide lockdown like the one early on in the pandemic that badly hurt the economy.

              By The Associated Press

              MOSCOW — Russia is reporting its largest daily number of new coronavirus infections, more than 70 percent up on the number a month ago as the country faces a sustained rise in cases.

              The national coronavirus task force on Sunday said 34,303 new infections were recorded in the previous day, compared with the 20,174 reported Sept. 19.

              The death toll of 999 was barely lower than the record 1,002 deaths reported on Saturday.

              Russian authorities have tried to speed up the pace of vaccinations with lotteries, bonuses and other incentives, but widespread vaccine skepticism and conflicting signals from officials stymied the efforts. The government said this week that about 43 million Russians, or some 29 percent of the country’s nearly 146 million people, are fully vaccinated.

              Despite the mounting toll, the Kremlin has ruled out a new nationwide lockdown like the one early on in the pandemic that badly hurt the economy, eroding President Vladimir Putin’s popularity. Instead, it has delegated the power to enforce coronavirus restrictions to regional authorities.

              Some of Russia’s 85 regions have restricted attendance at large public events and limited access to theaters, restaurants and other venues. However, daily life is going on largely as normal in Moscow, St. Petersburg and many other Russian cities...

                The Moscow city government has ordered people aged 60 and over to stay home for four months and told businesses to have at least 30 per cent of staff work from home amid a surge in COVID-19 cases and deaths in Russia.
                ..
                On Tuesday Russia reported 1,015 coronavirus-related deaths, the highest single-day toll since the start of the pandemic, as well as 33,740 new infections.

                    Russia Sets New Daily Covid Death Record
                    Updated: 2 hours ago
                    According to government figures, 1,123 people have died from Covid-19 over the last 24 hours. Sofia Sandurskaya / Moskva News Agency

                    Russia confirmed a new record number of coronavirus deaths for a second consecutive day Wednesday as the country with Europe’s highest official Covid-19 death toll counts down the days until nationwide restrictions come into force.

                    According to government figures, 1,123 people have died from Covid-19 over the last 24 hours.

                    Wednesday's increase brings the official death toll to 233,898 — Europe’s highest — though authorities are accused of drastically downplaying that figure. A Moscow Times analysis of excess deaths published by the federal statistics agency Rosstat puts Russia's total excess fatality count since the start of the pandemic at 660,000...

                      MOSCOW -- Russia on Saturday reported a record number of new coronavirus infections as authorities hope to stem the rising contagion by keeping most people off work for the next week.

                      The government's coronavirus task force reported 40,251 new infections in 24 hours, exceeding the previous record 40,096 reported on Thursday. It said 1,160 people died of the virus over the past day, three fewer than the record set a day earlier.

                      That brought Russia's official COVID-19 death count to 237,380, by far the largest in Europe. More than 8.47 million infections have been recorded in the country of 146 million during the pandemic...

                        Russia has reported a new record one-day death toll from COVID-19, as the weekly number of coronavirus cases in Europe now stands at levels unseen since the start of the pandemic.

                        The Russian national coronavirus task force said on November 14 that a record 1,241 people died from the virus over the past day -- two more than the previous record reported on November 10.

                        The task force said 39,256 new infections were recorded, bringing the country’s total number of cases to more than 9 million...

                          Russia's Official Daily COVID Deaths Again Near Record High

                          By RFE/RL's Russian Service

                          Russia reported 1,252 COVID-19 fatalities on November 21, the fourth consecutive day of near-record fatalities over the entire pandemic.

                          The country reported a record 1,254 deaths on both November 19 and 20 and 1,251 on November 18.

                          Russia has been widely criticized for possibly manipulating its coronavirus statistics and understating the consequences of the pandemic. Russia's statistics include cases in the Ukrainian region of Crimea, which Moscow annexed in 2014.
