Putin: Russia's COVID-19 battle far from over

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday that the country's battle with the coronavirus is "far from over" and called on people to abide by safety measures in an effort to curb the spread of the disease.

"The fight against the epidemic is far from being over, it continues," Putin said. "Risks persist, dear friends. I want to ask you to keep this in mind and show maximum responsibility for yourselves and those who are near you," he added.

Russia has recently seen a new surge in COVID-19 infections and earlier in the day reported 8,135 new cases, marking the country's largest daily rise in infections since June 16.
