Russia confirms 196 new coronavirus cases, 1,036 in total

AKIPRESS.COM - Russia confirmed 196 new coronavirus infections on Thursday, bringing the country’s official number of cases up to 1,036 and marking the country's largest one-day increase in cases so far, Moscow Times reports.

Russia said one more person had been killed by the virus in the past 24 hours, taking the total number of deaths to four. 

Most of the new cases, 157, are in Moscow. This week, Moscow changed the way it counts its coronavirus cases, with patients considered coronavirus-positive upon a single positive test rather than having samples sent to a lab Novosibirsk for further verification.
