Health officials reported 10 028 new cases over the last 24 hours, bringing Russia's total number of infections to 242 271.

In a statement Wednesday, the Moscow health department said authorities conducted autopsies on 100% of suspected coronavirus victims and confirmed that 639 people died directly of coronavirus complications in April.

Moscow's department of health said Russian Federation, unlike other countries, conducted post-mortem examinations for every death in which coronavirus was suspected as the main cause.

On Wednesday, the Moscow Health Department insisted that "post-mortem diagnoses and causes of deaths recorded in Moscow are extremely precise and the mortality data are absolutely transparent" but acknowledged "it would be impossible to name Covid-19 as the cause of death in other cases".

"In more than 60% of [suspected] cases, deaths were caused by obvious alternative causes, such as heart failure, stage four malignant diseases, leukemia. and other incurable deadly diseases", it said.

The official number of "excess deaths" in which fatalities exceed the historical average in the country, also appears to be much lower than other countries with such a large number of confirmed cases.

Almost 1,500 patients are now on ventilators, the minister said.

Healthcare workers have complained of shortages of protective equipment and said medics were dying at a higher rate in Russian Federation than elsewhere.

The statement from the Moscow health authorities argued that even if all mortality figures for April in Moscow were adjusted to attribute more cases to coronavirus, the overall mortality rate from Covid-19 infections would be far lower than the official mortality rates in NY and London.

A spokesperson for the US Federal Emergency Management Agency said the equipment had been sent to hospitals in US states NY and New Jersey but had not been used.

President Vladimir Putin's spokesperson, Dmitry Peskov, on Tuesday became the most recent senior figure in government to announce they had tested positive for the coronavirus. There is also varying reliability among the many tests so far developed.
