Russian PM orders watchdog to draw up plan to prevent virus spread

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin ordered Russia’s consumer safety watchdog to draw up and present a national plan to the government on Wednesday on ways to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Russia has not had any confirmed cases of the new virus, but has direct daily flights to several Chinese cities and officials said last year they expected more than 2 million Chinese tourists to visit in 2019.
