Russia reports its first coronavirus death

first_imgSome doctors have questioned the veracity of Russian data, given what they say is the patchy nature of testing. But the government has said it has been totally transparent about its handling of the crisis, and that its statistics are accurate.Moscow’s coronavirus crisis center said in a statement on Thursday that the elderly woman who died had begun receiving treatment last week in a private clinic before being moved to a hospital specializing in infectious diseases.It did not say where the woman was thought to have picked up the virus, but said her circle of close acquaintances had been identified and was under medical observation.None of them were displaying any serious coronavirus symptoms, it said. Russians aged over 60 were strongly advised to minimize contacts with other people, it added. Topics : Russia on Thursday reported its first coronavirus-related death, an unnamed 79-year-old woman in Moscow with underlying health issues who died from pneumonia after testing positive for the virus.Russia, which has temporarily barred entry to foreigners and imposed an array of flight restrictions, has reported 147 coronavirus cases so far, less than many other European countries.That figure has risen sharply in recent days however, but authorities have said the situation is under control and that most infected people have entered Russia from coronavirus hot spots.last_img read more

Diamond Guy gets the nod as Nicholls’ horses have form in the race.____________________________________Where will Gerry Murray enter on the Tipster Challenge leaderboard? 1Sarah Shannon – AppBet313.69 2Alan Alger – Betway311.41 3Jacob Johns – Easyodds37.72 4Phillip Anderson – Before The Off36.17 5Ciaran O’Brien – William Hill35.29 6bettingexpert1.614.63 7Ben Cleminson – Square in the Air14.50 8John Hill – Coral24.25 9Alex Donohue – Ladbrokes24.11 10Michael Shinners – Sky Bet24.00 11Stuart Tilly – Argyll Entertainment14.00 12Darren Moore – Betting Gods23.66 13Conor White – BetBright33.62 14Trevor Keane – Sportego23.50 15Harry Lang – Pinnacle13.50 16Timeform1.873.36 17Matthew Hulmes – Betfred23.25 18Paddy Power13.00 19Russell Yershon11.88 20Edward Rycroft – LeoVegas21.82 21Charlie McCann – BetVictor11.75 22Stephen Power – @racingblogger21.69 23John Cruces – Dafabet11.25 24Michael Whittle – Team FA10.91 25Ed Nicholson – Unibet10.73 RankTipsterRace WinsPointslast_img read more
