More than 25,000 new coronavirus cases were reported on Sunday, the highest number of daily infections since the fight for the most number of delta variants in the country since January.


Statistics of the coronavirus have risen since mid-June, compared to a background of reluctance among many to vaccinate and suspect shots grown indoors.

Russia on Sunday announced 25,142 new infections, the highest number since January 2 when Russia emerged from the second wave of the epidemic.


Russia this week recorded a carnivirus death for five consecutive days, registering a97 Kovid-19 deaths on Saturday.

On Sunday, 663 people were officially killed in Covid-19 in the last 24 hours.

Some experts say that Russia accurately reports the death of the carnivirus, counting only when the virus was found to be the primary cause of death after an autopsy.

Moscow, the country’s largest virus hotspot, has 624 new cases and 111 deaths.


The government has ruled out a nationwide lockdown, but this week President Vladimir Putin again called on Russians to vaccinate and “listen to experts” without rumors.

The vaccine dilemma is a huge challenge to Russian authorities and Moscow has become the first Russian city to introduce mandatory vaccinations.

At least 70 percent of service industry workers should be fully inoculated by mid-August, city authorities said.

Of the 5.6 million infected in Russia, 137,925 have died so far, according to official figures.


On Sunday, 3,3003 new cases of the virus were reported in neighboring Kazakhstan, a record since the outbreak began.

In June, another Central Asian country, Tajikistan, was diagnosed with the first coronavirus in more than five months.

On Saturday, Tajikistan made vaccines mandatory for citizens 18 years of age or older.
