Russian President Vladimir Putin at a meeting with members of the government said that the coronavirus did not bypass Russia, however, according to him, the situation in the country is being controlled

“This external threat could not ignore Russia, especially since part of our large country is located in the east, in the Far East, beyond the Urals, and a significant part of the population lives in the European part, there are contacts with different countries of the world,” Putin said.

He noted that due to intensive business, humanitarian and ordinary human contacts with foreign countries, the situation is becoming more complicated, however, Russia managed to curb the mass penetration and spread of the virus.

“Now, despite the potentially high level of risk, the situation as a whole is under control,” Putin said.
