Chinese citizens living in Russia are apparently faking their COVID-19 test reports in a bid to get back home. This has prompted Beijing’s envoy to Russia to issue multiple warnings. The Chinese embassy stated that such people were causing great harm to the crew and passengers of the flights they boarded, while also putting domestic virus prevention efforts at risk of failure.
