Moscow deports 88 foreigners for violating coronavirus quarantine - RIA

MOSCOW, Feb 28 (Reuters) - Moscow authorities are deporting 88 foreign nationals who violated quarantine measures imposed on them as a precaution against coronavirus, the RIA news agency cited Moscow’s deputy mayor as saying on Friday.

Hundreds of people have been quarantined in Russia to stop the virus spreading. Moscow authorities have carried out raids on potential carriers of the virus - individuals at their homes or hotels - and used facial recognition technology to enforce quarantine measures.
