The number of people infected with coronavirus in Russia exceeded 100 thousand. According to operstab data for Thursday, April 30, 7,099 new cases of infection were registered in 85 regions of the country over the past day.
Thus, the number of cases reached 106,498, 1073 patients died during the entire period of the epidemic, and 11,619 people were completely cured.
The largest number of new cases is in Moscow (3039) and the region (739). This is followed by Petersburg (336), Dagestan (158), Nizhny Novgorod (150), Bryansk (118), Kaluga (113) and Murmansk regions (101). In other regions, there are less than 100 new infections per day.
Earlier in the day, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that it is possible to timidly hope that the country has already reached a plateau in the incidence of COVID-19, but the violation of self-isolation for the may holidays may lead to an increase in cases of infection.
On April 28, Russian President Vladimir Putin decided to extend the non-working days until may 11. He noted that the peak of coronavirus infection has not yet passed, and called on Russians to self-discipline. The solution is aimed at reducing the spread of coronavirus infection.
The head of state also instructed to prepare a plan for the gradual lifting of restrictions from may 12. At the same time, he noted that it is impossible to make “carbon copy” decisions in relation to all regions, because the spread of coronavirus in the subjects is at different rates.
