MOSCOW, Nov 13 (Reuters) – Russia on Saturday reported a new record one-day death toll of 1,241 from COVID-19 and 39,256 new cases of coronavirus in the past 24 hours.

Most of Russia’s more than 80 regions lifted a week-long workplace closure at the beginning of the week, which was intended to curb a rise in the number of cases.
