Russia recorded 14 new coronavirus infections in the past 24 hours, bringing the country’s total number of COVID-19 cases to 59. The new positive test results include nine patients in Moscow, two in the Kemerovo region, one outside Moscow, one in St. Petersburg, and one in the Kaliningrad region. All of these individuals returned from trips to Europe in the past two weeks. These people are now hospitalized and in isolation.

At the time of this writing, 56 Russian citizens and three foreigners have tested positive for coronavirus in Russia. Eight patients have already been discharged after making full recoveries.

On March 14, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin demanded a reduction in the number of mass public events across the country and called on Russians to cancel any plans to travel abroad. Moscow previously suspended all public gatherings of more than 5,000 people.
