Coronavirus

FIVE Andalucians are desperate to return to Spain after becoming trapped in the epicentre of the Coronavirus in China. 

The four from Sevilla and one from Jaen were in Wuhan to train the Wuhan Shanguen football team when news of the virus broke.

They are now trapped inside their homes and don’t leave unless they need to buy supplies, however these are now running low in the supermarkets.

The sports director of the team Pedro Morilla says he wants to return ‘as soon as possible to Spain’ to avoid being infected.

He told Canal Sur TV that he and his colleagues are in ‘perfect health’.

They have been practically trapped in their homes for five days since air traffic from Wuhan was suspended by the Chinese government.

They are all donning masks and living as minimalist as possible to avoid having to go outside or to places where there are lots of people.

In total 22 Spaniards were in Wuhan to help train the football team, however some managed to get out before air traffic was stopped.

It comes as foreign affairs minister Arancha Gonzalez Laya is working with the Spanish embassy in Beijing to try and repatriate the trapped Spaniards.

A meeting is being held today on potential extraction plans.

It comes after an Andalucian was tested for the virus at the weekend, however their results came back negative.
