First two cases of coronavirus confirmed in Russia, both Chinese citizens

In a bid to prevent to the spread of the deadly virus, Russia has already closed its Far Eastern border with China, halted issuing work visas to Chinese citizens and suspended visa-free travel for Chinese tourists groups. The latter move, however, only applies to Chinese nationals, with Russian tourists being exempted. Some 650 Russians that became stranded in the Hubei province, the center of the outbreak, would be brought home on a military aircraft. Every returnee will face 14-days of quarantine.

Russia has also suspended preferential travel for Chinese citizens to Russia through Mongolia, and restricted the flights from China to Terminal F of the Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport. Most of the outbound flights were cancelled, apart from direct routes to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Hong Kong operated by Russian carrier Aeroflot.
