Egypt preparing special flight to evacuate citizens from China's Wuhan

CAIRO, Jan 30 (Reuters) - Egypt said on Thursday it was preparing a special flight to evacuate its citizens from the Chinese city of Wuhan, epicentre of a coronavirus outbreak, and would quarantine them for 14 days on their return home to avoid contagion, the cabinet said.

The coronavirus has so far killed 170 people, all in China, and infection has spread to more than 8,100 people globally. (Reporting by Momen Saied Atallah, writing by Amina Ismail Editing by Gareth Jones)
