Russia’s Coronavirus Cases Near 100K in Latest One-Day Jump

Russia confirmed 5,841 new coronavirus infections Wednesday, bringing the country’s official number of cases to 99,399.

Russia is now the eighth most-affected country in terms of infections, having surpassed China and Iran this week.

In total, 972 people have been killed by the virus in Russia.

President Vladimir Putin warned Tuesday that Russia had not yet reached the peak of coronavirus infections but said a “phased exit” from the country’s lockdown measures could begin in two weeks.
