Covid-19 deaths in Russia hit a record for the fifth consecutive day

Moscow-ALsharqiya October 23: Russia announced today, Saturday, a record number of daily deaths from Covid-19, for the fifth consecutive day, recording 1075 deaths, at a time when the authorities are preparing to close workplaces throughout the country and close the capital. Also, 37,678 new infections were recorded. Despite making one of the world's first vaccines against Covid-19, Russia has only vaccinated about a third of its population, one of the lowest rates in Europe. President Vladimir Putin agreed last week to close workplaces for a week at the beginning of November, and the capital, Moscow, will reimpose a partial closure from October 28, with only shops selling essentials such as pharmacies and supermarkets allowed to remain open.
