COVID Deaths in Russia Top 900/Day; Venezuela Accuses IMF of Withholding Pandemic Funds

HeadlineOct 08, 2021

COVID-19 deaths in Russia have topped 900 per day this week for the first time since the start of the pandemic.

Venezuela says the International Monetary Fund has not delivered funds that are part of a global program to help countries combat the pandemic, because of the ongoing refusal to recognize elected President Nicolás Maduro as the nation’s head of state. Venezuela blamed the U.S. for imposing a veto on Venezuela at the international body.
