Russia overtakes UK, Italy with 221K COVID-19 cases

Russia President Vladimir Putin

Russia now has the third-highest number of coronavirus cases in the world, overtaking the UK and Italy.

There were 11,656 new cases reported in the past 24 hours in the country, taking the overall total to 221,344.

Only the US and Spain have reported a higher number of coronavirus cases. We should point out though that comparisons between countries are not always accurate because of different factors such as the extent of their testing.

Russia has reported a further 94 deaths, taking the total death toll to 2,009, which is far lower than the numbers reported in many other countries.

President Vladamir Putin was already due to address the country after reviewing the nation’s lockdown measures later on Monday. As it stands, Russia’s lockdown is set to end on Tuesday.
