MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia’s coronavirus outbreak is entering a more stable phase, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said on Wednesday, while warning that restrictions should be lifted carefully in the 17 regions where such moves have been authorised.

Russia’s coronavirus cases passed through 300,000 on Wednesday, but with the lowest daily rise in infections since May 1.
