More than 1,000 workers at the biggest gold mine in Krasnoyarsk Krai were diagnosed COVID-19, making it one of Russia's leading regions for coronavirus cases

An employee of the Olimpiada Gold Mine in the Siberian region of Krasnoyarsk Krai died of the coronavirus on May 21. This is the first death from the disease among the mine’s workers, hundreds of whom became infected with COVID-19 over the course of the last few weeks. The gold mine’s coronavirus patients make up about a third of the cases in the Krasnoyarsk Krai — a region that is home to 2.8 million people.
