The border closures affect crossings in the Jewish Autonomous Oblast, Khabarovsk and Amur regions, Reuters reported.

There are still no confirmed cases of the coronavirus in Russia. However authorities in Moscow have introduced special precautions in hotels and tourist sites in the Russian capital because of concerns about the transfer of the Chinese coronavirus, said Mayor Sergei Sobyanin.
