France evacuated its citizens on a flight departing from Wuhan, China on Friday. The Ministry for Foreign Affairs tells Ilta-Sanomat that there are also Finns on the flight.

However, the MFA does not comment on how many Finns are on the flight or what happens to them at their destination. The flight will land in Paris in the morning.

France has made the evacuation flight conditional on persons on board the aircraft showing no symptoms of coronavirus.

Helsingin Sanomat reported the first evacuation flight.
