Germans are said to be flown out of Wuhan on Saturday

-

eAccording to Federal Minister of Health Jens Spahn (CDU), around a hundred Germans want to be flown out of the Chinese metropolis Wuhan, which is particularly affected by the new coronavirus. Preparations for this flight are “on the right track,” said Spahn on Wednesday in the ZDF “Morgenmagazin”. Like a German Wuhan resident of the F.A.Z. reported that she had received the information that the Germans should be flown out on Saturday. They have not yet been given precise details. So you still don’t know whether to pick them up or where to go for the return.

Spahn left open how the Germans returning from Wuhan would be dealt with after their arrival in Frankfurt am Main and whether they might be isolated immediately afterwards. “We are in contact with the Hessian authorities there,” said the Federal Minister of Health.

Meanwhile, there was a suspected case on board a Lufthansa aircraft en route from Frankfurt am Main to the Chinese city of Nanjing. After landing on Wednesday morning, one of the passengers was classified as a risk case by the Chinese authorities, as Lufthansa confirmed. The Chinese are said to have coughed and were in Wuhan City two weeks earlier. It was initially unclear whether he was actually infected. The passengers in the three rows in front of and behind the man as well as the crew were then also examined. The crew is now on the way back to Frankfurt.

In spite of the fact that four cases of illness have now also occurred in Germany, Spahn said that he continues to advise “watchful calmness”. The course of the disease in the known German cases is “very mild”, the German authorities are very well prepared. In addition, China acts much more transparently than in the Sars epidemic in 2002 and 2003. Spahn admitted, however, that he would sometimes want China to be even more transparent.
