Covid mortality rate surges in Russia, 999 dead in 24 hrs; toll mounts to 221,313
The cases of infection and deaths due to covid are zooming up over the last one month in Russia, according to the figures released by the Government. Hospitals are overflowing with patients and the retired doctors are being called back. In certain regions QR code is being used for entry to public places. The current covid status for Russia is: Putin and his entourage are safely back after a covid visitation. Meanwhile, interestingly, sources said a Russian pharmaceutical company has started producing the British-Swedish AstraZenica vaccine but it is meant for export as Russia will use only domestically developed vaccine (which the WHO has not passed).

MOSCOW, Oct 15: The covid cases in Russia have climbed to a total of 7,925,176 and deaths to 221,313 so far. On Friday Russia reported a record high number of both new covid cases and deaths. There were 32,196 new cases and 999 fatalities from covid over the last 24 hours. On Thursday officials had reported 31,299 new cases, a steep rise from 28,717 the previous day, and 985 deaths.

Health Minister Mikhail Murashko has called on retired doctors to get vaccinated and return to work due to record increases in covid cases. And in many regions hospitals are overflowing with patients.

He said as of Tuesday 235,000 of Russia's 255,000 covid hospital beds nationwide were occupied, with 6,000 patients on ventilators.

Hospitals in several regions have suspended planned medical procedures as it battles an “extremely difficult” surge in covid cases. Health authorities said they may soon have to start treating patients in corridors.

Deputy Prime Minister Tatiana Golikova has said the Federal Government to ask Russian regions to introduce QR codes for attending mass events, the State-run RIA Novosti news agency reported.

Official sources said 38 of Russia’s 85 regions have introduced vaccine mandates for certain categories of citizens and employees working in designated sectors of the economy, such as retail and hospitality.

The Moscow region has imposed vaccine mandates for sales, food, transport, public service, hair salon and fitness club employees.

However, Russia will resume regular air travel with the Bahamas, Iran, the Netherlands, Norway, Oman, Slovenia, Tunisia, Sweden and Thailand from November 9, it was announced on Thursday.

Russian President Vladimir Putin had said last month that dozens of people in his entourage had tested positive for covid and he himself had gone into self-isolation.

Meanwhile, a World Health Organization delegation will visit Russia this month as part of its approval procedure for Russia's Sputnik V vaccine. WHO had earlier suspended approval for Russia's Sputnik V vaccine as Russia was not forthcoming with the necessary trial documents.

Interestingly, a Russian pharmaceutical company has launched production of the British-Swedish AstraZenica vaccine. Sources said the doses will be exported as Russia uses only domestically developed vaccines within its borders.
