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

Most of Russia’s more than 80 regions lifted a week-long workplace closure earlier this week designed to slow an increase in the number of cases.
