Quarantine of evacuees from China doesn't need extra financing - Popova

TYUMEN. Feb 5 (Interfax) - The evacuation of Russian citizens from Wuhan and their quarantine at the Tyumen center will not require additional expenses, Russian Federal Service for Health and Consumer Rights (Rospotrebnadzor) chief Anna Popova said.

"What is happening today [evacuation and quarantine] is being done through funding from allocations to federal executive authorities, constituent entities for this year," Popova said.

"But I would like to point out that a human life is priceless. And we proceed from this stance," she said.
