Coronavirus: Lockdown eased in Moscow after nine weeks

coronavirus SUA

Authorities in Moscow have eased lockdown restrictions, even as case numbers continue to rise.

Parks and shopping centres in the Russian capital reopened and people were allowed out for walks and limited exercise for the first time in nine weeks.

President Vladimir Putin announced last week the country had passed the peak of its outbreak.

But infections are still rising, and some question lifting restrictions.

Russia reported another 9,035 confirmed cases and 162 deaths on Monday. In total the country has recorded 414,878 infections – the third highest number in the world after the US and Brazil – and a death toll of 4,855.
