Tuesday, 28 January 2020 18:06 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Nations around the world are evacuating their students and other citizens from coronavirus-stricken China, while other countries are choosing to leave their citizens in Wuhan, the university city where the virus reportedly started.

Around 500 Bangladeshi students are among the stranded in Wuhan. They have called for help on social media, while the Chinese and Bangladesh governments negotiate a strategy.

œThrough the social [media] site WeChat, students got informed of the mystery infectious virus that was spreading fast, Mazharul Islam, a freshman in the School of Electrical Engineering at Wuhan University, told VOA.

œHowever, we were told that there is nothing to get worried about and the virus is under control. Later through WeChat we were advised to use masks when stepping out of the dormitory.

Islam said there were 30 Bangladeshi students on his campus. Through Chinese social media WeChat, he said, he and others learned there were 500 Bangladeshi students in Wuhan. He said the Bangladesh Embassy in Beijing œwould notify us if there were any emergency evacuation taking place. He said they have been provided with masks and preventive medicines from the university.

Masudur Rahman, the deputy chief of mission at the Bangladesh Embassy in Beijing, said of the 3,000 Bangladeshis in China, most are students and teachers.

œWe, from the Bangladesh Embassy in Beijing, are in contact with the Chinese authorities and are trying to find a possible solution in the present situation, Rahman said. Evacuation would œhave to take place through a bilateral arrangement.   

Meanwhile, other countries are arranging flights out of China for their citizens.

France “ where three cases of the coronavirus have been reported -- said it will operate several direct flights under the supervision of medical experts out of China midweek for French citizens who want to leave.
