MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Kremlin said on Tuesday Russia’s healthcare system was under heavy strain as authorities reported a record 491 deaths linked to COVID-19 and infections surged. “The healthcare system is working under heavy strain, but with the exception of a few regions...the situation remains under control,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters. Russia’s Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine will cost less than $20 per person on international markets and Moscow aims to produce more than a billion doses at home and abroad next year, its backers and developers said on Tuesday. Russia has a huge testing programme and is now carrying out four to six times more tests than it was in April, she added. With a population of around 145 million, Russia has the world’s fifth largest number of cases at 2,138,828, after the United States, India, Brazil and France.

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Some Russian hospitals are experiencing serious shortages of drugs used to treat COVID-19 and cannot restock because of panic buying, high demand and problems with a new labelling system, officials, distributors and doctors said. Doctors in over a dozen regions face big shortages of antibiotics, antiviral drugs and other medicines used to treat COVID-9, three local officials and three drugs vendors told Reuters. Russian doctors use a specific programme with specific drugs to treat COVID-19 patients. “The only cure is to pray,” said an official who works in a regional COVID-19 crisis centre. There are just not so many of these drugs available,” said a regional official from a COVID-19 crisis centre.
