Russia has reported a record daily death toll from COVID-19. It’s the fifth time in a week that deaths have hit a new high in the country.
The national Coronavirus task force said on Sunday that 890 deaths were recorded over the past day.
That exceeds the 887 reported on Friday. The task force also said the number of new infections in the past day was the second-highest of the year at 25,769.
But officials say there are no plans to impose a lockdown. Mask-wearing regulations are in place but loosely enforced.
The country of 145 million has recorded about 7.5 million infection cases and nearly 210,000 deaths during the pandemic.
