Turkish and Chinese authorities are working on a coordinated management process to provide a secure departure for Turkish citizens who want to leave coronavirus-hit Wuhan city, Turkish diplomatic sources told Daily Sabah, adding that about 25 Turkish citizens are currently in the Chinese metropolis of 11 million, where the virus is believed to have originated.
On Tuesday, the Chinese government confirmed more than 4,500 cases of the coronavirus and 106 deaths. Most deaths occurred in the central city of Wuhan, where the epidemic began last month.
The sources noted that Turkish diplomatic staff in China joined chat groups on the country's most popular messaging application, WeChat, to communicate with Turkish citizens and inform them of developments. "The evacuation process continues in coordination with Chinese authorities," added the sources.
