China has decided to evacuate its citizens from India in the wake of rising coronavirus cases.

The move to evacuate its citizens comes in the wake of India emerging as the 10th worst-hit country by the deadly virus, which has infected nearly 1.40 lakh people in India.

The Chinese embassy on Monday put out a notice on its website, asking those wanting to return home to book tickets in special flights.

The notice by the Chinese embassy said the people opting to return home will have to accept all quarantine and epidemic prevention arrangements during the flight as well as after entering China.

The notice in Mandarin said people treated for coronavirus infection or having symptom of the infection like fever and cough in the last 14 days should not take the special flights.

It suggested that people from some other countries may also be evacuated.

The notice said the cost of flight ticket and quarantine in China will have to be borne by the evacuees.
