Russia may close border with Belarus due to outbreak of coronavirus Covid-19

Coronavirus was first detected in Belarus.

A few hours ago in Belarus, the first case of Covid-19 coronavirus was detected. Due to the actually open borders between Belarus and Russia, experts believe that Moscow can close the free movement between the two countries.

According to the Belarusian media, the first case of Covid-19 coronavirus was recorded several hours ago by a student at the Belarusian National Technical University. We are talking about an Iranian citizen undergoing training at one of the faculties of the Belarusian university.

According to a number of data, several Belarusian students were hospitalized with an Iranian citizen, and therefore, there is a very high risk of the spread of the disease, including to the territory of Russia.

“It is too early to talk about the closure of flights between the two countries, however, if the incidence of the Covid-19 coronavirus continues to increase, then mandatory control is required for all citizens arriving by air or ground from neighboring Belarus”, - the analyst notes.

It should be noted that according to statistics, the main way of spreading the Covid-19 coronavirus between the countries of the world is air communication.
