Moscow leads among the Russian regions in the number of deaths due to the virus. A little less than 1/5 of all deaths were recorded here. According to the estimates of the operational headquarters, a total of 47 468 people died in the country with a confirmed diagnosis.

The data of the operational headquarters are at variance with the calculations of Rosstat. According to the statistics department for April-August alone, more than 45 thousand people with COVID-19 have died in Russia. The difference between the data of Rosstat and the operational headquarters is explained by the fact that the latter takes into account only those cases when the coronavirus became the main cause of death.
