The UK government has organized an evacuation flight for British nationals on board the quarantined Diamond Princess cruise ship in Japan.
A total of 624 confirmed cases of the virus have been linked to the ship during its quarantine in Tokyo Bay.
UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab says the flight will depart Tokyo on Friday.
Details have been sent to those who have registered for the flight. We urge other British nationals still seeking to leave to contact us,” he said.
“We will continue to support British nationals who wish to stay in Japan.”
