Four Pakistani students in China have been diagnosed with the new coronavirus, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Health Dr Zafar Mirza said on Wednesday.

“They are doing well, getting the best care possible, and the families are being notified and reassured. Thanks to Chinese authorities and Pakistani embassy for their rapid response,” Dr Mirza said in a Twitter post.

Will Pakistan be evacuating the rest of the students?

Other countries including Japan, US and Australia have begun to evacuate their citizens from Wuhan. There are about 300 Pakistani students currently living in Wuhan and they have pleaded to the government to evacuate them as soon as possible. However, there has been no reply from the government regarding their evacuation.
