Russia has extended an entry ban for foreigners to slow the spread of coronavirus.

The decree barring foreigners from entering the country, which was introduced in mid-March, was set to expire Wednesday. But instead prime minister Mikhail Mishustin extended it apparently until further notice.

According to a report on AFP, Mishustin told officials meeting to discuss Russia’s response to the pandemic:

I have signed a government resolution on extending it until the fight against the infection is over and the epidemic situation has improved.

Russia reported 5,841 new cases of the coronavirus on Wednesday, bringing its overall nationwide case tally to 99,399. The official nationwide death toll reached 972 on Wednesday after 108 more deaths were announced.

President Vladimir Putin warned on Tuesday that Russia had not yet reached the peak of coronavirus infections and extended lockdown measures in the country for two weeks.
