Authorities in Russia have begun sounding the alarm about a new wave of coronavirus now sweeping the country, causing a record number of deaths in recent days.
Some regions have begun introducing restrictions – including Moscow, where many workers are being obliged to get vaccinated and restaurants will soon only be open to people who can prove they are Covid-free.
Meanwhile St Petersburg is hosting football fans for Euro 2020 and reluctant to bring in any tough measures, even as the city’s hospitals are filling up with Covid patients.
