Russia reports more than 10,000 new coronavirus cases

AKIPRESS.COM - Russia confirmed 10,028 new coronavirus infections Wednesday, bringing the country’s official number of cases to 242,271.

Russia is now the second most-affected country in terms of infections and has the world's second-fastest rate of new infections behind the United States.

Ninety-six people died over the past 24 hours, bringing the total toll to 2,212.

The Kremlin this week eased a national lockdown to slow the spread of the virus, despite a steady rise in numbers that has brought Russia to second place in a global tally of infections, behind the United States.

A majority of Russia's new cases were registered in the capital, a government virus tally said, where Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin has extended a lockdown until the end of May.
