In Russia, the number of people infected with the new coronavirus per day has risen to more than 49,000, the highest number ever.

The government is increasing caution as it is expected to increase further with the spread of the mutant virus Omicron strain.

In Russia, the number of new infections per day of the new coronavirus has been declining since it exceeded 40,000 in November last year, and it has been in the 10,000 range since the beginning of this year. It is increasing rapidly in a week.

On the 21st, the Russian government announced that the number of people infected per day was more than 49,000, the highest ever, "It is expected that the infection with Omicron strain will spread rapidly and increase further." I have expressed concern.

On the 21st, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishust instructed government agencies around the world to move to remote work as much as possible.

However, the number of deaths per day is in the 600s, which is about half of the peak, and the Russian government has taken major regulatory measures for the time being, saying that the number of people hospitalized due to serious illness is not increasing rapidly. We are calling for thorough infection control and active vaccination.
