Moscow, Aug 7 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 7th Aug, 2020 ) :More than 5,400 people died in Russia from the coronavirus in June, the state statistics service said on Friday, one thousand more people than previously announced by the authorities.
Russia's reported mortality rate is much lower than in other countries with similar rates of infection, leading critics to accuse officials of under-reporting deaths to minimise the scale of the crisis.
In 1,399 of those cases the coronavirus caused complications that led to a patient's death, the Rosstat said.
Russia counts only those deaths directly caused by the virus, unlike some countries that count all deaths of people infected.
