Russia on Friday registered another record number of coronavirus victims, 1,163 within 24 hours. According to the coronavirus task force in this state, this is the highest daily death toll since the pandemic broke out. With the latest figures, the total number of victims has reached 236,220, at the same time the highest number of victims in Europe.
To stem the tide of infections, Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered a week of downtime from October 30 to November 7, suspending most offices from office.
Moscow has also taken action, closing schools, gyms, shops, and restaurants. Authorities have said the situation is due to low vaccination rates.
About 51 million Russians – just over a third of the population – have been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus. Russia was the first country in the world to authorize the coronavirus vaccine in August 2020, Sputnik V. However, the immunization process has slowed down due to the suspicions of citizens, who have said that the authorities have given different signals for the vaccine. .
