MOSCOW, November 26. /TASS/. About 10-11% of hospitalized COVID-19 patients in Moscow are in intensive care units, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said in an interview with Rossiya-24 channel on Thursday.

"Unfortunately, as it was before, about 10-11% of the total share of hospitalized patients are in ICU. This figure remains the same, almost the same percentage. So we cannot say that the coronavirus is becoming less insidious or more safe," Sobyanin said.

Moscow ranks first in Russia on the amount of COVID-19 cases, with 577,177 people diagnosed with the virus in total and 6,075 cases recorded in the past 24 hours. Meanwhile, 428,418 people have recovered and 8,603 have died.
