Blagoveshchensk/Sputnik:  Flights to Sanya city on China's Hainan Island from the city of Blagoveshchensk in Russia's Far East have been suspended over the new coronavirus outbreak, the Ministry of Transport and Road Management of Russia's Amur Region said in a statement.

"Yakutia Airlines has suspended the Blagoveshchensk-Sanya-Blagoveshchensk due to the unfavorable epidemiological situation in China. The flight to Sanya scheduled for January 29 will depart from Blagoveshchensk without passengers to evacuate Russian tourists who are on vacations in the Chinese resort city," the statement said.

The ministry added that flights would be resumed as soon as the situation around coronavirus stabilized.

The unknown type of viral pneumonia was first detected in the Chinese city of Wuhan in late December. On Monday, the World Health Organization changed the global risk degree of the deadly coronavirus from "moderate" to "high."

According to the latest data of China's National Health Commission, the death toll from the novel coronavirus has reached 106, with the total number of confirmed cases now standing at 4,515.
