Russia reports 24,471 new COVID-19 cases, 796 deaths

·1 min read

MOSCOW, July 22 (Reuters) - Russia reported 24,471 new COVID-19 cases on Thursday, including 4,287 in Moscow, taking the official national tally since the pandemic began to 6,054,711.

The government coronavirus task force said 796 people had died of coronavirus-linked causes in the past 24 hours, pushing the national death toll to 151,501.

The federal statistics agency has kept a separate count and has said Russia recorded around 290,000 deaths related to COVID-19 from April 2020 to May 2021.

Russia is facing a surge in coronavirus cases that authorities have blamed on the Delta variant and the slow rate of vaccinations. (Reporting by Gleb Stolyarov; Writing by Alexander Marrow; Editing by Alison Williams)
