Two laboratories, where people can be tested for COVID-19, have already started working in the Moscow region, and three more will be opened soon, according to the regional government.

Russia previously established a group of specialists, including military virologists, to assist Rome, as Italy is among the worst-hit countries with the highest number of victims and patients in critical condition.

According to recent data, there are at least 438 confirmed coronavirus cases in Russia, while some 340,000 people have been infected worldwide, with the global death toll reaching 14,750. At the same, almost 100,000 people have recovered from the disease.
