“Tonight, while passing the border control in the train No. 6 Kiev - Moscow, a Chinese citizen with a high temperature was detected,” the company said.
At the Bryansk-Orlovsky border sanitary-quarantine point of the Rospotrebnadzor department for railway transport, TASS reported that there were 21 people in the car - 19 passengers and two conductors.
“The car’s release was caused by suspicion of one of the passengers on the coronavirus,” the agency’s interlocutor said.
According to him, at present, passengers and two conductors are in the carriage and undergo a medical examination in it.
Passengers of an uncoupled car, without signs of illness, will be quarantined.
The train followed from Kiev to Moscow and was formed by the Ukrainian Railways.
