In the Primorsky Territory, trucks began to pass through the border with China. The authorities took this measure to avoid a shortage of fruits and vegetables in the market, which was outlined in the regions of the Far East.

According to the press service of the regional government, after the closure of checkpoints, dozens of trucks with products were unable to travel from China to Primorye. The ban was valid until February 2, and after it was extended. 

According to experts from the local Ministry of Industry and Trade, boxes of vegetables and fruits do not pose a danger to people, the virus lives on their surfaces for no more than a few minutes. Therefore, to ban the import of products from China was considered incorrect.

The shortage of fruits and vegetables has already led to a jump in prices. This was announced not only in the Primorsky Territory, but also in Yakutia, Khabarovsk Territory, and other regions of the Far Eastern Federal District. Retailers explained this by the need to look for other suppliers in Azeirbajan and Turkey with high purchase prices and shipping costs.
