    New Delhi (Sputnik): The World Health Organisation has declared the spread of novel Coronavirus, which started in Wuhan, China, as a ‘Public Health Emergency of International Concern’.

    On Friday, the Indian government sent a special Air India Flight to evacuate its citizens stranded in Wuhan, China, the epicentre of the Coronavirus outbreak.

    While landing at the airport in Wuhan, the flight crew shot a video showing empty roads, a deserted airport and no people at all.

    In the video, the crew can be heard saying: "Empty roads. There is nobody outside. Everyone is inside the homes. Even the airport is empty."

    Coronavirus, which emerged in December 2019 at a live wild animal market in Wuhan, the capital city of China's Hubei province, is spreading globally. The epidemic has already left 213 people dead and 9,692 infected in China.
