All passengers from China arriving in Moscow to visit must first be quarantined for two weeks upon arrival, says the city’s mayor on Friday.

The measure follows a broad ban preventing Chinese citizens from travelling to Russia due to fears about the new coronavirus, with exemptions to be made for certain students, officials, and business people.
