The government's Covid-19 task force also reported 38,058 new cases, including 3,927 in the capital Moscow.

Health Minister Mikhail Murashko said in parliament on Wednesday that the oxygen supply in hospitals in Russia's 12 regions was only sufficient for the next one or two days unless there was a refill.

At the same time, he said, a number of regions were starting to report a decline in cases, and vaccinations had paid off because only three to four percent of Russians who had been vaccinated were infected.

More than 62 million Russians had received at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, Murashko said. (ant/dil/mcr20/jpnn)
