Russia reported more than 1,000 daily deaths from COVID-19 for the first time since the pandemic began on Saturday.

It was the third day in a row that Russia reported record cases and deaths, with more than 33,000 new cases reported in a single day.

The rise in cases and deaths has put increasing strain on the Russian health system, but authorities still have to resort to a national lockdown to sustain the economy.

Russia has a low vaccination rate, with just over 30% of the population fully vaccinated against the virus, and authorities have blamed the public for not getting vaccinated.

The country has reported 222,315 deaths since the pandemic began, which is the highest in Europe.

However, the statistics institute Rosstat, which has a broader definition of coronavirus-related deaths, puts the death toll at more than 400,000.
