Russia restricts Iran, S Korea travellers over virus

Moscow yesterday announced new restrictions on travel to Russia from Iran and South Korea, two countries hit hardest by the outbreak of the new coronavirus.

A separate decree imposed restrictions on travel to Russia from South Korea, with exceptions including members of official delegations.
