Covid19: Russia virus toll, deaths, hit new highs

Russia on Saturday registered record numbers for daily infections and deaths from the coronavirus, two days after having passed two million cases.Health officials reported 24,822 new infections and 476 deaths, bringing the national total to 2,064,748 million cases and 35,778 fatalities since the beginning of the year.While those figures suggest a lower death rate than elsewhere in the world, they need to be treated with caution.

The official Russian death toll only includes those in which Covid has been established as the primary cause of death after an autopsy.Data published by Russia's federal statistics service earlier this month indicated excess deaths of more than 117,000 year-on-year between March and September, suggesting that virus.
