Russia registered 15,099 COVID-19 cases over the past 24 hours, slightly down from the all-time high of 15,150 reported Friday, the country's COVID-19 response center said Sunday.

Russia's cumulative number of coronavirus cases has grown to 1,399,334, including 24,187 deaths and 1,070,576 recoveries, the center said in a statement.

Moscow has seen a spike in COVID-19 infections, tallying 4,610 new cases over the past day, bringing the city's total to 362,253.

Along with many other European countries, Russia has been witnessing a steep growth in COVID-19 cases over the past weeks, after many restrictions were lifted and people gathered in large groups during the summer.
