Mortality due to covid in Russia increased by 14% in two days
Over the past two days, an increase in mortality associated with COVID-19 has been recorded in Russia. Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova said this, as Interfax reports.
In the last two days, we have recorded a rise in mortality by 14%. If before that we recorded a decrease in mortality rates for the entire period, starting from December last year, until the last days, in the last two days, unfortunately, this is an increase in fatal outcomes.
Golikova associated the increase in deaths with the fact that the sick do not go to the doctor in a timely manner. According to her, the Russians “according to the usual situation for us use conventional antiviral agents, and sometimes even worse – antibiotics … without distinguishing that it is a common cold or covid.”
The Deputy Prime Minister added that the increase in the incidence of COVID-19 over the last five days of this week compared to five days of last week on average in Russia amounted to 34.4%, in Moscow – 54.4%
On June 18, Moscow recorded the maximum daily increase in new cases of coronavirus since the start of the pandemic – 9056. The city introduced compulsory vaccination for workers in some areas and extended restrictions on public events and visits to public places until June 29.
Following Moscow, mandatory vaccination for certain categories of citizens was introduced by the Moscow Region, Kemerovo, Sakhalin, Leningrad and Tula Regions.
