At the request of France, the EU will coordinate the evacuation of civilians from the Chinese city of Wuhan, the epicenter of the corona virus. This week two planes depart with at least 250 French and 100 other EU citizens. It is not known whether Dutch people are included.

Twenty Dutch people currently reside in Wuhan. A spokesperson for the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs has indicated that they are not known to be infected.

The first plane, with only Frenchmen on board, will take off on Wednesday. The second aircraft with other EU citizens is leaving later this week. The EU will co-finance transport costs. The European Commission has a special pot of money for this, the so-called 'civil protection mechanism', which can be used in emergencies and natural disasters.

Only healthy people, without symptoms of the virus, are allowed. There is a chance that people are already infected, but that this is not yet reflected in physical complaints. For this reason, EU citizens from Wuhan will be immediately quarantined.

Doctors have a duty to notify GGD from Tuesday

In the Netherlands, the virus is now referred to as A disease, which means that doctors have a duty to notify the GGD if there are indications that a patient may be carrying the virus. Infected people can be forced into hospital or placed in isolation. All hospitals in the Netherlands have such locations. No additional measures are currently being taken at Schiphol.

In total, the corona virus has already resulted in the deaths of 106 people. In addition, more than 4,500 people have been infected. Outside the Chinese mainland, fifteen countries, including Germany and France, have been infected.
