According to information circulated by the Russian media and confirmed to Shephard, several officials working at the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) headquarters in Moscow have been infected by the COVID-19 coronavirus and hospitalised.

The UAC press office officially announced that it had taken anti-epidemic measures at its production facilities and also ordered all employees at its head office to work remotely.

NBC protection troops from the Eastern Military District disinfected the Gagarin Aviation Plant at Komsomolsk-na-Amur. The work was carried out by a detachment of the 16th NBC Protection Brigade, using ARS-14KM decontamination vehicles.
