About 213 people, including Canadian citizens and their families, who were evacuated from Wuhan have returned to Canada, officials said.
“I want to thank everyone who helped bring these Canadians home safely. They have undoubtedly undergone a stressful situation and we are thankful that they are back in Canada," Health Minister Patty Hajdu said in a statement.
The group traveled in a Canadian chartered plane and a second flight led by the United States.
The evacuees were placed in a 14-day quarantine at the Canadian Forces Base Trenton in Ontario. None of them have shown symptoms of novel coronavirus, authorities said.
