Topics : A senior Russian official on Saturday called on citizens of the country to refrain from non-essential travel abroad over fears about the growing number of coronavirus cases internationally.Anna Popova, the head of Russia’s consumer health watchdog, told local news agencies that Russians should stay put to avoid contracting the virus.”In order to consider yourself protected today, first of all possible future trips outside the native country need to be reduced as much as possible,” Popova said. “Now is a time when it is not worth leaving Russia.”Despite sharing one of the world’s longest borders with China, where the first coronavirus cases were recorded last year, Russia has relatively few confirmed cases of the illness on its territory.Three Russian nationals are receiving treatment in Russia after they contracted the virus on a cruise ship in Japan, the authorities have said. Two Chinese nationals were earlier taken to hospital in Russia with the virus but have since recovered.Russia has quarantined hundreds of people to prevent the spread of the epidemic, and authorities in Moscow are carrying out raids on potential carriers of the virus and using facial recognition technology to enforce quarantine measures.Moscow’s deputy mayor said on Friday that the country will deport 88 foreign nationals for allegedly violating quarantine measures imposed on them as a precaution against the coronavirus.
BBC News 22 January 2015Proposals to introduce a law to ban smacking children in Wales have been dropped.The assembly’s communities, equality and local government committee had considered including the ban as part of a new law to tackle domestic violence.However, Public Services Minister Leighton Andrews said it was the “wrong vehicle” to introduce such a law.Committee chair Christine Chapman said she was disappointed the government “cannot yet do the right thing”.In October 2011 assembly members voted in favour of banning the defence of “reasonable chastisement” for smacking.But the then minister responsible for children, Gwenda Thomas, ruled out legislation before the 2016 assembly election, citing the need for preparatory work amid fears of “criminalising” parents.http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-wales-30935832
