Russia’s coronavirus caseload surpassed 300,000 on Wednesday, second only to the U.S.

New hotspots contributed to the count in infections, such as the North Caucasus republic of Dagestan, one of the hardest hit regions. Medical services have struggled to contain the virus and federal authorities dispatched doctors and medical equipment to the region.
