Britain will send a second and final plane to evacuate UK nationals from Wuhan province in China, where the coronavirus is believed to have originated. The charter flight is expected to leave on Sunday morning at Royal Air Force base Brize Norton, officials said in a statement.
“We have been working round the clock to help British nationals leave Hubei province, on UK, French and New Zealand flights," Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said.
“I encourage all British nationals in Hubei to register with our teams if they want to leave on this flight,” he added.
On Tuesday, the UK's Foreign Office advised British nationals to leave China.
