Indian plane with relief for Wuhan waits but China denies delay

Feb 21, 2020 18:13 IST

China on Friday denied any delay in allowing a special Indian flight to the coronavirus-hit Wuhan city to deliver medical supplies and evacuate remaining Indians from there, saying the concerned departments of both the countries were in touch to finalise the schedule. India on February 17 announced that it will send Indian Air Force's largest plane C-17 Globemaster with medical supplies to Wuhan and bring back its nationals as well as citizens from all neighbouring countries who were still stuck there on the return flight. The plane was supposed to take off on Thursday but as of Friday afternoon it was still waiting for China's clearance, official sources told the Hindustan Times. This as the death toll in China rose to 2,236 with the overall confirmed infection cases climbing to 75,465.
