Russia continues to record another 10,102 corona virus infections in the past 24 hours, bringing the country’s total to 155,370, ranked 7th in the world.
The number of infections on 4/5 of Russia is 10,581 and on 3/5 is 10,633, higher than many European countries.
Of the 5/5 cases, 5,714 were in Moscow, and 49.1% had no symptoms.
95 people have died in the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of deaths in Russia to 1,451, according to The Moscow Times.
Russia is emerging as a new hot spot for the corona virus while many countries in Western Europe began to relax the blockade measures.
Although Russia’s Covid-19 case is growing sharply, its mortality rate is still lower than the world’s most serious outbreak countries such as the United States, Spain, Italy, France, Germany and the United Kingdom.
President Vladimir Putin extended the period of social isolation until May 11, but also said it could gradually remove the restrictions later, depending on the region.
Moscow remains the center of Russia’s epidemic, accounting for about half of the country’s infections. Mayor Sergei Sobyanin warned “an increasing threat” and urged people to respect anti-epidemic measures during a long holiday in early May.
The health of Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, who tested positive for corona virus, is now stable. “The prime minister continues to work over the phone,” the Russian prime minister’s spokesman Boris Belyakov said, according to the RIA.
In addition to Prime Minister Mishustin, Construction Minister Vladimir Yakushev and Deputy Minister Dmitry Volkov were also infected with the corona virus. So far, these are the three highest-ranking Russian officials infected.
