The number of coronavirus deaths in Russia passed 5000 on Tuesday. Health authorities registered 182 new deaths in the last 24 hours, bringing the total to 5,037.
The new figures come as Russia eases lockdown measures and prepares to get the economy going again.
The government also reported 8,863 new infections out of a total of 423,741, the third-highest after the United States and Brazil.
The number of new corona infections has been steadily decreasing since mid-May when the government reported daily increases of approximately 11,000 cases.
The authorities say that the high number of infections in Russia is the result of extensive tests.
The steady decline in new infections and the low death toll mean the country can return to normal, they say.
