The total number of deaths due to coronavirus in the capital, according to the method of counting the operational headquarters, reached 10,022. The death record in Moscow was recorded on May 30. Then 78 people died with coronavirus.
More than 70 deaths have been recorded every day since November 15 in Moscow. On November 20 and 27, as well as on December 4, 11 and 14, the number of deaths almost reached a record high (77 victims).
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.
