Coronavirus/COVID-19 Cases in Russia Surge to 36,800

In past 24 hours, the number of people infected with the novel coronavirus in Russia has grown by 4,785 to 36,793 in all the country’s regions. The latest figures were released by Russia's anti-coronavirus crisis center today.

According to statement released by the anti-coronavirus crisis center, "Russia has registered 36,793 coronavirus cases by the progressive total method in 85 regions (+15%). A total of 467 people have recovered from the illness and been discharged from hospitals over the past twenty-four hours and 3,057 over the entire period. A total of 40 coronavirus patients have died over the past twenty-four hours. Over the entire period, 313 people have died across Russia." 

As far as Moscow is concerned, the city has registered 2,649 new coronavirus cases and their total number in the Russian capital has climbed to 20,754 (as reported by anti-coronavirus crisis center).

In late December 2019, Chinese officials notified the World Health Organization (WHO) about the outbreak of previously unknown pneumonia in the city of Wuhan, in central China. Since then, cases of the novel coronavirus - named COVID-19 by the WHO - have been reported in every corner of the globe, including Russia.

On March 11, 2020, the WHO declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic. According to the latest statistics, over 2,250,000 people have been infected worldwide and more than 154,000 deaths have been reported. Besides, so far, over 575,000 individuals have recovered from the illness across the globe.
