Russia has confirmed 8,764 new COVID-19 cases in the last 24 hours, raising its total number of infections to 308,705, its coronavirus response center said in a statement Wednesday.

The single-day increase has fallen below 10,000 for five consecutive days, the center's data showed.

The death toll grew by a daily record of 135 to 2,972, while 85,392 people have now recovered, including a record 9,262 over the last 24 hours, according to the statement.

Moscow, the country's worst-hit region, confirmed 2,699 new cases in the last 24 hours, taking its total to 152,306.

Russia's consumer rights and human well-being watchdog said in a statement Wednesday that 273,953 people were under medical observation as of Tuesday.

More than 7.5 million lab tests for COVID-19 have been conducted across the country so far, it added.

Wednesday was the first day when the number of recoveries exceeded the number of new cases, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said.

This, according to him, means that Russia may have started to pass the peak of the pandemic, which would allow some regions to gradually lift coronavirus-related restrictions.

So far, 17 of Russia's 85 regions have reached the target criteria for phasing out such restrictions, while 14 regions have already decided to cancel part of them, Mishustin said.

These restrictions have already hurt Russia's labor market, as the number of people registered as unemployed increased to over 1.66 million as of Tuesday, Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova said Wednesday.
