A second Canadian plane carrying evacuees from Wuhan, China landed at CFB Trenton, Ontario this morning with 185 passengers aboard.

As was the case with passengers from the first Canadian flight, and those who got out on a US government plane, the passengers will be quarantined for two weeks.

So far, no one in the first two sets of passengers has shown any symptoms of the new coronavirus.

One of them, 25-year-old Myriam Larouche says her private room at Yukon Lodge, a motel on the base, has a fridge, a microwave, a T-V and an ensuite bathroom.

Meals are delivered to her door and she is allowed outside, but has to stay two-metres away from her fellow evacuees.
