The national coronavirus task force on Thursday said 1,195 people died of COVID-19 over the past day. That exceeds the 1,189 recorded the previous day. Russia has tallied new highs in infections or deaths almost daily since late September. The task force reported 40,217 new infections. That’s down from the record 40,993 on Oct. 31.
