Russia sets another daily record for COVID-19 deaths


MOSCOW – Russia on Wednesday reported another record of daily COVID19 deaths amid a slow vaccinatio­n rate and authoritie­s’ reluctance to tighten restrictio­ns. The coronaviru­s task force reported 984 virus-related deaths over the prior 24 hours, the pandemic’s new high. Russia, which has repeatedly marked record daily tolls in the past few weeks, reported 28,717 newly confirmed cases Wednesday. Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said Tuesday that about 29% of the nation’s nearly 146 million people were fully inoculated.
