Russia reported 7,933 new coronavirus cases on Friday — its biggest single-day jump in cases so far.
That brings the national total to 114,431 cases and 1,169 deaths, according to the country’s coronavirus response headquarters.
This figure doesn’t reflect the number of active cases, but rather the total number of infections since the start of the outbreak. So far, 13,220 patients have recovered, the center added.
The spike comes a day after Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin appeared on state television informing President Vladimir Putin by video conference that he’d tested positive for the virus.
