    Maybe they have special permission from the Chinese authorities? Jan 25, 2020 at 20:33

1 Answer 1


The Chinese goverment are giving special permissions for companies and countries who wishes to evacuate their people / citizens from affected areas.

They will have to be screened of course before being allowed to leave but once cleared and special transport is arranged they are free to leave.

No normal commercial transport is available however so it is chartered planes only at that point from Wuhan.
