Spread of COVID-19 in RussiaSince the beginning of the pandemic until June 7th, 2023, a total of 22,917,873 infected people and 398,919 deaths have been reported in Russia.
The total of 22,917,873 infected people currently represents 15.70 percent of the total population.
Current vaccination statusAccording to official WHO data, a total of 186.68 million vaccine doses have been administered as of May 26th, 2023. More recent data are not yet available to WHO. There are 88.80 million people who have received at least one vaccination (60.9 percent).
79.70 million of these are considered fully vaccinated in Russia (= 54.6 percent).
This means that Russia is only in the middle of the field in terms of vaccination coverage. The vaccination rate is higher in 134 countries.

* DTP is a combined basic vaccination against diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough) and tetanus, which should be given to children up to the age of 23 months.
In Russia, 26.8 percent of all over 15-year-olds are still smokers.
Medical suppliesThe medical care provided by doctors and hospitals in Russia is above average and also exceeds the average achieved in the EU countries. The country provides 7.1 hospital beds per 1,000 inhabitants. The global mean here is 2.9 beds. Within the EU, 4.6 beds are available for every 1,000 residents.
With about 576,000 physicians in Russia, there are about 4.01 doctors per 1000 inhabitants. Here again the comparison: worldwide this standard is 1.50 physicians per 1,000 inhabitants and in the EU is 3.57.
Through medical care, the mortality rate of major known diseases can be reduced as far as possible. For example, only about 24 percent of all people who suffer from cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases or chylomicron retention disease (CRD) currently die.
Drinking water supplyExplanation of the graph:
Red line: access to water supply via wells or delivered drinking water
Green bars: Permanent access to running and tested drinking water connection
Only around 76 percent of the population has access to an immediately available running water supply. At least via springs and wells within a maximum distance of 30 minutes or supplied water, 97 peprcent of the population is supplied with largely clean drinking water. In a global comparison, only about 74 percent of the population has direct access to tested and always available drinking water. Within the European Union, this share is 98 percent. Only in a few countries does the proportion fall below 10 percent.
