In the past day, Russia recorded 440 new cases of COVID-19, raising the country’s confirmed total to 2,777 infections. Once again, most of the new positive results (267) were in Moscow. Between March 31 and April 1, the number of deaths caused by coronavirus rose by seven people to 24. Meanwhile, a total of 190 people are known to have recovered fully from the illness.
To curb the spread of COVID-19, most areas of Russia have now ordered local residents to self-isolate. People are only permitted to leave their homes to commute to work, shop at the nearest store or pharmacy, take out the trash, or walk their dogs.
