Over the past 24 hours, 23 patients died from coronavirus in the North-Caucasian Federal District (NCFD): 10 people died in Dagestan; seven – in the Stavropol Territory. Chechnya is in the third place; three deaths were recorded there for the last 24 hours. These three regions are still in the lead in the NCFD in terms of the daily increase in the number of infected persons.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that in late November, Chechnya, where earlier there was the smallest surplus in coronavirus cases, came into the third place with 91 cases.

Over the past 24 hours, a total of 23 people died from COVID-19 in the NCFD: ten in Dagestan, seven in the Stavropol Territory, three in Chechnya, two in Kabardino-Balkaria, and one in Ingushetia, says the "Stopcoronavirus.rf" website, which forms its coronavirus statistics based on the data from the Russia's Ministry of Public Health and the "Rospotrebnadzor" (Russian Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing).

The today's figure for Chechnya is a record one for at least a month.

For the entire time of the pandemic, the total number of COVID-19 deaths in the NCFD made 1968. Most of them – 937 deaths – were in Dagestan; 539 people died in the Stavropol Territory; 207 – in Kabardino-Balkaria; 110 – in Ingushetia; 76 – in North Ossetia; 65 – in Chechnya; and 34 – in Karachay-Cherkessia.
