With nearly 140,000 infections worldwide, the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak has reached pandemic status. 

We’ve rounded up the latest figures on the coronavirus in all post-Soviet countries. Estonia leads the pack with 258 infections, a wide margin over second-place Russia with 147 infections. Nearly all countries have closed schools and discouraged large gatherings in an attempt to prevent the spread of the virus. 

The first death recorded was a 51-year old woman in Azerbaijan who had recently returned from a trip to Iran, followed by two fatalities in Ukraine.

We will continue to update the list as the numbers change.
