Russian fined $200 for failing to undergo COVID-19 test after returning from Tanzania
MOSCOW, April 8 (RAPSI) — A court in Russia’s Kemerovo Region has fined a local resident 15,000 rubles (about $200) for the failure to comply with the requirement to pass the coronavirus test after arriving from Tanzania, the press service of the court informs RAPSI on Thursday.
The court, taking into account the nature of the offense, the full admission of guilt by the offender, as well as the fact that the man had been brought to administrative responsibility for the first time, limited the punishment to an administrative penalty in the form of a minimum administrative fine, according to the statement.
The court found that the man arriving at the end of February by air from Tanzania, did not undergo a laboratory test for COVID-19 within three calendar days from the date of arrival and did not post information about its result on the State Services portal. Thus, he failed to comply with the established sanitary-hygienic and anti-epidemic measures.
