MOSCOW, Oct. 28 (Xinhua) -- Russia registered 40,096 new COVID-19 cases over the past 24 hours, the highest daily count since the pandemic hit the country, taking the national tally to 8,392,697, the official monitoring and response center said Thursday.

The nationwide death toll grew by a single-day record of 1,159 to 235,057, and the number of recoveries increased by 29,318 to 7,272,053.

Meanwhile, Moscow, Russia's worst-hit region, reported 8,440 new cases, the highest in four months, taking the city's total to 1,795,010.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova said on Wednesday that around 67.8 percent of the population had received at least one dose of vaccines.

Many Russian regions, including Moscow, entered a period of paid non-working days from Thursday to at least Nov. 7, during which all non-essential shops and businesses will be closed and the people are advised to limit travel. Enditem
