Russia past peak of coronavirus, says Putin, on day country records highest daily death toll

Vladimir Putin said Russia has passed its peak of coronavirus infections, on the same day the country recorded its highest daily death toll.

After peaking in mid-May at more than 11,000 new cases per day, the number of daily infections in Russia has dropped below 9,000. On Tuesday, the country recorded its highest daily death toll of 174 – a number still far lower than in countries with similar rates of infections.

Speaking on Russian television, Putin said “according to experts, the peak can be considered passed”, according to the AFP news agency. The Russian president also ordered a second world war victory parade postponed by the pandemic to be held on 26 June.
