Russia has detected the highest 10,633 coronavirus patients in a single day taking the total to 134,687. However, the death rate is decreasing in the country.

Lockdowns are being relaxed as the number of corona cases and deaths in various European countries, including Italy and Spain, is declining. Russia is the only country in Europe where new infections are on the rise. However, despite the increase in the number of victims, the death rate in the country is declining.

According to Russian government figures, 58 people have died in Russia due  to coronavirus infection in the past 24 hours. The total death toll in the country is 1,280.

The Russian capital, Moscow, has the half of all coronavirus casualties in Russia. The city's mayor, Sergei Sobanin, said the epidemic in the capital had not reached its peak. In Moscow, 5,946 people were newly infected and the total number of those infected was 64,606.

Russia has imposed a tight lockdown since the end of March to prevent the spread of the corona. "The situation is getting very complicated," said President Vladimir Putin. As a result, the lockdown will continue till May 11.
