“The president, of course, daily and if necessary hourly receives information on the development of the situation,” said Peskov.

Earlier, he said that Russia is conducting large-scale and systematic work to protect against the spread of coronavirus.

On February 5, two Russian Aerospace Forces aircraft were evacuated from China by Russians in connection with the spread of coronavirus.

As noted in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, 132 citizens of Russia expressed their desire to urgently leave Hubei Province.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova said that Russians being evacuated from China will be quarantined in the center in the Tyumen region.
