Kremlin chief Vladimir Putin has called for a more effective vaccination campaign in the face of new records of coronavirus deaths in Russia. Nationwide vaccination is of great importance, Putin said Tuesday at a meeting with newly elected Russian lawmakers. The President called on them to vaccinate the population.
Only 47.8 million Russian citizens, about 33 percent of the 146 million residents, received at least one dose of the vaccine. As the government announced last Friday, 42.4 million people, about 29 percent, are considered to be fully vaccinated.
On Tuesday, Russia recorded a new high in the number of daily deaths related to COVID-19 with 973 deaths within 24 hours. In this month alone, the country has repeatedly recorded daily records of fatal infections, and the daily number of new infections consistently near record values - on Tuesday alone, 28,190 new infections were reported.
Despite the rapidly increasing number of cases, the Kremlin is still ruling out a nationwide lockdown. He has delegated the power to decide on more stringent measures to the regional administration. Some Russian regions have now reacted by limiting the number of participants at major events – and people entering cinemas, restaurants and other public places either vaccinated, recently recovered from Covid-19 Have or have tested negative for the virus in the past 72. hours.
