Title Russia’s Covid Death Toll Surges to Record in October Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet Bloomberg Media type Country/Territory United States Date 03/12/2021 Description Russia has struggled with a low vaccination rate and cases reached a record last month. The country’s soaring death rate is undermining President Vladimir Putin’s goal of boosting population growth.
“Russia has failed at vaccination, and as a result the death rate in Russia since the beginning of 2021 has remained at a very high level,” Ilya Kashnitsky, a demographer from the University of Southern Denmark, said. “Vaccination is a good illustration of the problem of mistrust in power.”
