"A total of 399 cases of COVID-19 have been registered in the Crimea since the beginning of the pandemic and 170 cases - in Sevastopol. A total number is 569," the statement said.
On June 3, nine new cases of coronavirus infection were registered in Crimea and Sevastopol.
Dmitry Krutikov, "Deputy Head of the Regional Department of Russia’s Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing", said that 1002 tests had been conducted for the day. This was stated during a daily briefing on the situation with the spread of coronavirus in the Crimea.
As we reported earlier, Ukraine's Foreign Ministry once again reported human rights violations by the Russian Federation in the annexed Crimea.
"In spite of its healthcare protection commitments that it undertook as an occupant state (...), the Russian Federation uses sharpening of the humanitarian situation as a smokescreen exclusively for further assault on rights and freedoms of Crimeans," the message reads.
