Volodin added 263 patients were undergoing treatment in hospitals, while the rest were on self-isolation. Some 9,021 people are under medical supervision.

The official reiterated that due to the negative trend of incidence, on Saturday he made a request to comply with quarantine measures so that there was no need to remove relaxations already in place.

"This Monday, the country changed criteria for strengthening quarantine: hospital load over 50%, the average number of PCR tests over the past seven days below 23 per 100,000 people, new incidence rate over 11%, and the infection rise dynamics over 10%," he said.

"As of today, the indicators in the region are as follows: hospital load at 22.3%, testing coverage is 41.98%, detection rate is 5.88%, and dynamics is 23.23%. It is the latter indicator that causes concern, and if it does not fall for three days in a row, we will be forced to make a tough, but responsible decision," Volodin said.
