VLADIVOSTOK, June 15. /TASS/. No middle east respiratory syndrome virus cases have been diagnosed yet in the Russian Primorye territory, a source from a regional consumer rights watchdog (abbreviated as "Rospotrebnadzor" in Russian) told TASS on Monday.
"More than 270 people arriving from South Korea undergo non-contact thermometer checks and visual medical examinations at a border check point at Knevichi airport. Most of them are plane crews and tourists who return home. None of the returning people have been certified yet as running high temperature," the source said.
Despite an outbreak of the coronavirus infection "the residents of the Russian Primorye territory do not give up trips to South Korea; only a few trips have been canceled," Lyudmila Tkachenko, tour operator of the Vladivostok office of the Korean Airlines company, told TASS.
"Most of the passengers from the Russian Primorye territory fly to South Korea as transit passengers and do not leave the airport premises. But, since recently, the people have been rather often calling the office to ask about the situation in respect to the coronavirus. Nonetheless, very few people return their air tickets for that reason. Approximately 140 passengers fly to South Korea by the Korean Airlines every day, and about the same number return to Vladivostok," Tkachenko said.
The Korean Airlines company accounts for most of the air transportations from Vladivostok to Incheon. 0ere.
