The government will also postpone the flagship Sochi Economic Forum due to be held Feb. 12-14 as a precaution, Mishustin said at a televised meeting with his deputies on Monday. Russia is taking “all necessary measures” to prevent the spread of the virus, and has sufficient medicines, he said.

Russia reported its first two cases of coronavirus on Friday after two Chinese nationals were diagnosed in Siberia. It has canceled nearly 200 flights to China and also mostly closed its land border for passenger traffic.
