Russia will expel foreigners to keep the country safe.
While the US allows planes to fly in directly from Wuhan without even checking the passengers.
Russia plans to expel foreigners who test positive for the fast-spreading new coronavirus, Interfax news agency reported on Monday, as nations worldwide try to curb an outbreak that has killed 361 people in China since it emerged in December.
Russia, which has a 4,300-km (2,670-mile) border with China, reported two cases of the virus last week, in the Siberian region of Tyumen and the far eastern Zabaykalsky region, both involving Chinese nationals.
Russia’s military will start flying back Russian citizens from China’s Hubei province, the epicenter of the virus, on Monday, taking 130 people back out of a total more than 600, officials have said.
Separately, Russia had moved 58 of its citizens back from China’s border regions as of Feb. 1, the regional Primorsk government said on its Instagram account over the weekend.
The Primorsk region also opened special isolation zones on Sunday for Chinese arriving in Russia, where they will be held for 14 days irrespective of whether they have tested positive for the virus.
So far, there have been no confirmed cases in the region, the government said. Prime Minister Mikhail Mishushin said on Monday that Russia plans to expel foreigners who test positive for the virus, Interfax reported.
Just imagine what America could be if our government actually did things for our own people instead of promoting the interests of foreigners.
It would certainly be better for the people of America if our leader behaved more like the leader of Russia.
