Russia decided today to close its eastern border, which shares thousands of kilometers with China, to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus that causes Wuhan pneumonia, which has already caused at least 170 deaths, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said.

"The corresponding decree was signed today, and it has entered into force. The border will be closed in the Far East region and other measures will be taken" to stop the disease from progressing, Mishustin said during a cabinet meeting.
