China has closed down the city of Wuhan and it’s surrounding neighborhoods, trapping millions of Chinese citizens as well as nationals from other countries as a result of the Wuhan Virus. France announced plans to evacuate their countrymen by the middle of this week, with an evacuation plan from the US following shortly after. This was carried out by the US on Tuesday when they transported about 200 US citizens from the area of containment.

The CDC has been screening the passengers and, so far, all have been cleared of infection. Most of the people removed resided at the US consulate, and all were very glad to be back home, reportedly cheering as the plane touched down in Anchorage.
