How Foreign Service officers in China worked 'around the clock' to evacuate Singaporeans from Hubei | Video

(Updated: )

Singapore was among a number of countries that evacuated its citizens from China’s Hubei province, the epicentre of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Two evacuation flights that landed on Jan 30 and Feb 9 brought home nearly 270 Singaporeans from Wuhan, the provincial capital.

In an exclusive interview with CNA, Singapore’s Ambassador to China Lui Tuck Yew described how the Foreign Service worked around the clock to secure the relevant approvals from various levels of the Chinese government, including those in 16 cities and counties.
