Russia's Covid situation 'very strained'

The Covid situation in Russia remains "very strained", the country's health minister has warned.

Mikhail Murashko said that many people were not following safety guidelines.


The country has recorded more than 1.3 million cases and over 22,000 deaths, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

It comes as Moscow has announced the introduction of online learning for most of its students.

The move applies to students from grades six to 11 and is set to be in place for two weeks.

Students in grades one to five are set to return from a two-week holiday put in place to prevent a further outbreak among younger students.

According to Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin, older students account for two thirds of children infected with the virus.
