Canadians wanting to get out of Wuhan still don’t know when help will arrive because Ottawa is still waiting for Beijing to allow the chartered plane to land.
The airspace around Wuhan is currently closed but when Canada’s plane is allowed to arrive, those hoping to get out will be flown to CFB Trenton.
They and the flight crew will remain in quarantine for two weeks and be monitored for signs of the virus.
Canadians who want to leave must be in Wuhan travelling on their Canadian passport. They’ll also have to not be showing any symptoms before boarding the flight.
There are now 325 Canadians who want out.
