TOMSK, Mar 16 – RIA Tomsk. Tomsk bus station is ready to return money for all previously sold tickets to Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, since the transport connection through the Russian-Kazakh border for any type of transport, except diplomatic, was stopped on Monday morning, the deputy general director for operation of Tomskavottrans JSC Valeriy Zhuikov said RIA Tomsk.

It was previously reported that an outbreak of pneumonia caused by a new type of coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 was recorded in Wuhan, China at the end of 2019. The disease is called COVID-19. According to Izvestia, as of the morning of March 16, about 170 thousand people were infected in the world, almost 78 thousand were cured, and more than 6.5 thousand died. In Russia, the diagnosis was confirmed in 63 patients, including two in Kemerovo.

According to Zhuikov, from Monday, the Tomsk bus station temporarily does not sell tickets for runs from Tomsk to Pavlodar, Semipalatinsk, Karaganda, Ust-Kamenogorsk, as well as run passing through Kazakhstan to Kyrgyzstan – all of them were canceled.

"A decision was made by the president of Kazakhstan to declare a state of emergency in the territory of Kazakhstan in connection with the spread of coronavirus. A restriction on entry and exit from Kazakhstan for all modes of transport, excluding diplomatic <...> from 08.00 on March 16 is declared. For what period, no one says now", – Zhuikov said.

He added that those who bought tickets earlier have the right to a refund and can contact the ticket office of the bus station.

Tomskavtotrans (100% regional property) is a strategic carrier in the Tomsk region on inter-municipal routes (mainly under agreements with regional carrier companies). The company owns the Tomsk bus station.
