China brings back 370 Hubei residents stranded in Japan, Singapore

China arranged two more chartered flights to bring home stranded citizens from Japan and Singapore to Wuhan, capital of central China's Hubei Province, amid the novel coronavirus outbreak on February 5. As many as 223 Hubei residents got aboard a flight from Osaka, Japan, along with 2.5 tons of epidemic control supplies donated by local Japanese and overseas Chinese. A total of 900 Hubei residents stranded abroad have been brought back as of Wednesday. Fa, a Chinese high school teacher on the flight, said, "I am rushing back home to prepare lessons. We will have online courses starting February 10. But I'm not yet ready to give lessons. I have to come back home."
