Foreign Affairs Minister Francois Philippe Champagne says that the first charter flight from Wuhan will bring 211 Canadians home.

Addressing a media briefing he said that a second charter flight is being considered.

Champagne informed that weather complications delayed the flight to Wuhan by 4 hours.

The 211 people on the manifest have been asked to reach the airport by 5PM local time.

308 Canadians had applied to be evacuated from the infected area in China, out of which 280 are Canadian citizens.

China has maintained that only the people with foreign passports will be allowed to fly out of China.

However, primary caregivers of minors will be allowed to board the flight even if they don't have a Canadian passport.
