2020/01/26

Q: As we understand, the US consulate general in Wuhan announced its plan to close the consulate and evacuate American personnel to the US. I wonder if you have any comment?

A: After the pneumonia outbreak caused by the novel coronavirus in Wuhan, China has notified the WHO and relevant countries about the epidemic in a timely manner and has stayed in close contact with them.

Recently the US proposed to evacuate its personnel from the consulate general in Wuhan to the US. Following international customary practices, China makes arrangements that are consistent with our epidemic control measures and provides necessary assistance and convenience.
