COVID-19 in Russia: Doctors warn number of cases much higher

Doctors say the government is trying to cover up the outbreak in Russia by changing the official cause of death.

While the coronavirus pandemic continues to ravage Europe, Russia seems to be less affected.

One death and 658 infections have been confirmed, in a nation of 147 million people.

But as Al Jazeera’s Step Vaessen reports from Moscow, some officials and doctors are warning the country could be heading towards a serious outbreak.
