Thirty Poles evacuated from coronavirus-hit Wuhan, in the province of Hubei, central China, were scheduled to arrive in the southwestern Polish city of Wrocław late on Sunday, Poland's Foreign Ministry said earlier on Sunday.
An evacuation is in progress of those Poles who want to leave coronavirus-hit Wuhan in China, said Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Szymon Szynkowski vel Sęk on Saturday. The health ministry told PAP that the Poles would be transported “around Monday.”
About 30 Poles are willing to evacuate from Wuhan in central China to escape the spreading coronavirus, which was first reported in the city. Poland's transport minister said on Thursday that the evacuation will take effect by the middle of next week.
Poland has asked the European Commission for help in organising the evacuation of Polish citizens from the coronavirus-affected central Chinese city of Wuhan under the EU's Union Civil Protection Mechanism (UCPM), the Foreign Ministry told PAP on Thursday.
