Récord de muertes de Covid mientras Rusia se prepara para las aceras a nivel nacional

Rusia registró un récord 1,075 Covid muertes en 24 horas del sábado mientras el país más afectado de Europa con tasas de vacunación dramáticamente bajas se prepara para las restricciones a nivel nacional a partir de la próxima semana.

Despite a number of pleas from the country’s president, Vladimir Putin, and the availability of the home-produced Sputnik V vaccine, solamente 36% of Russians are fully vaccinated.

According to government figures, the country registered a record 37,678 new Covid cases on Saturday.

The official death toll is now 229,528, the highest on the continent.

Authorities have been accused of vastly downplaying the effects of the pandemic. Figures from the governmental statistics agency Rosstat paint a far darker picture, suggesting that more than 400,000 people had died from coronavirus by the end of August.

Moscow, the centre of Russia’s outbreak, will shut non-essential services between 28 October and 7 noviembre. Putin also ordered a nationwide paid week off starting on 30 octubre, during which the Kremlin said the president would have no in-person meetings.

Putin linked Russia’s high death rates this week to what he called an unfortunately low vaccination rate and urged Russians to show responsibility and get the jab.

Sputnik V is being used indozensof countries, but it is not approved by the EU or the World Health Organization.
