Russia reported 10,633 new coronavirus cases on Sunday, increasing its confirmed case total to 134,687.

Why it matters: It marks the fourth consecutive day that the country announced record single-day increases, according to Johns Hopkins University data.

  • From April 30 to May 3, Russia has reported a surge of more than 35,233 cases. It follows about a week of relatively steady increases of around 5,000–6,000 cases per day.

The big picture: Moscow, the largest city by population in Russia, accounts for more than one-half of total cases.

  • Around 50% of the total cases were asymptomatic, Russia's coronavirus response headquarters said in a statement, according to CNN.
  • The virus has killed at least 1,280 people in Russia.
  • President Vladimir Putin extended the country's nationwide lockdown through May 11 last week.

Chief Minister Michael Gunner told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation Tuesday the Northern Territory would keep border restrictions in place for Aussie coronavirus hot spots for at least 18 months, stressing it's important to protect the NT's Aboriginal population.

Driving the news: Victoria declared a disaster last week. The state confirmed Tuesday another 331 infections, taking the total number of active cases to 7880, and 19 more deaths — equaling the national daily record it set the previous day. New South Wales (NSW) reported 22 new cases. The NT has three active cases. "We have got an indefinite ban on Victoria," Gunner said. He couldn't give a date on when the NT would ease restrictions on NSW capital Sydney as case numbers were "bubbling away."
