Russia Becomes Second Hardest-Hit Country by Covid-19 Pandemic

Tuesday 12 May 2020
Russia Becomes Second Hardest-Hit Country by Covid-19 Pandemic

With 10,899 more coronavirus infections reported across the country on Tuesday morning, Russia now trails only the United States in terms of people known to have contracted Covid-19.

Nationwide, 232,243 confirmed cases have been discovered since the start of the outbreak, national disease response officials said. This figure is higher than those recorded by Spanish (227,436), British (224,332) and Italian (219,814) authorities.

However, it's worth noting that Russia has over twice the population of those countries and has carried out far more tests.

At the same time, Russia has had considerably fewer deaths from Covid-19 than some other European countries, according to official estimates. A total of 107 fatalities have been attributed to coronavirus over the last 24 hours, bringing the overall total to 2,116. More than 43,500 patients in Russia have recovered.

The UK, Italy, Spain, and France each have more than 25,000 deaths, and Germany has over 7,000. On Monday, the Financial Times suggested that Moscow may be undercounting fatalities by up to 70%, but but the same newspaper also believes that the real British death toll may be double the 32,141 acknowledged by London.

The number of Covid-19 cases in Russia grew slowly during the first weeks of the outbreak, but has surged recently. Officials believe the scale of the rise is largely down to a rapid increase in mass testing.

On Monday, President Vladimir Putin ended the national ‘paid holiday’, introduced more than six weeks ago to encourage people to stay at home, and allowed regional governments to relax quarantine measures in areas less affected by the coronavirus.

In Moscow, factories and construction companies were allowed to resume work from Monday. However, the mandatory self-isolation regime was extended to the end of the month, as the capital and its surrounding region remains Russia’s top Covid-19 hotspot. Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin also ordered residents to wear masks and gloves in shops and on public transport, and to maintain social distancing.
