Russia reports 21,127 new COVID cases, 491 deaths

Russia has registered 21,127 new COVID-19 cases and 491 coronavirus-related deaths over the previous day, the Health Ministry's data showed on Sunday, taking the total tally to nearly 3.72 million positive cases and 69,462 fatalities since the start of the pandemic.

Over the same 24-hour period, 22,445 people successfully recovered from the disease, lowering the total number of active cases to 518,178. Daily recorded cases continued the decline which started in late-December, even though a slight increase was seen compared to the previous day.

Despite the coronavirus outbreak, large anti-government protests recently sparked across the country following the arrest of opposition leader Alexey Navalny. Both the United States and the European Union condemned methods used by the Russian police against protesters.
