Russia confirmed 54 new coronavirus infections on Friday, bringing the country’s official number of cases up to 253 and marking the largest one-day increase since recording began, APA reports citing RT.

Russia’s officially reported numbers — which are still far below those in European countries — have sparked suspicion, with experts warning that its testing capacity is hampered by bureaucracy and officials warning that the real number of cases is likely much higher.
