Russian health officials have reported 6,595 new coronavirus cases, the highest daily surge since July as the number of daily new cases started to grow in late August in Russia.

Moscow reports over 1,000 new cases on Thursday for the first time since June.

Russia is in the fourth in the world with 1,128,836 confirmed cases and 19,948 deaths of coronavirus.

The increase was expected and Russia’s health care infrastructure was prepared for it, according to officials.

However, Russia was the first country in the world to approve a vaccine against the virus last month.
