Russia continues to have a firm grip on the Delta variant. The number of deaths and new infections is increasing. A game of the EM 2021 is ultimately to blame.
St. Petersburg – The Corona situation in Russia is noticeably worsening*. St. Petersburg in particular is affected by new infections. The European Championship quarter-final match between Switzerland and Spain only took place in the Russian city on Friday, July 2, 2021. The big problem: Many of the fans present in the stadium, but also those interested in the fan zones, did not wear a medical protective mask against the corona virus.
Accordingly, the Russian authorities have to report sad numbers. 25,000 new infections were recorded within 24 hours. As many as not since the beginning of January 2021. The Robert Koch Institute had already classified Russia as a virus variant area at the end of June. This also includes Great Britain, where the Delta variant continues to rage*, and until the end too Portugal, whose incidence levels forced the government to seal off the capital, Lisbon*. * Kreiszeitung.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
