S. Korea's third chartered flight to Wuhan brings back 140 S. Koreans, their Chinese families Updated: 2020-02-12 04:56:17 KST

Let's start with our continuing coverage of the coronavirus outbreak.
A third chartered flight from the virus-stricken Chinese city of Wuhan has landed at Seoul's Gimpo International Airport within the past hour or so.
It has brought back around 1-hundred-40 people, and for the first time, it includes around 60 Chinese nationals who're the immediate family members of the South Koreans.
Some South Koreans in Wuhan did not get on the previous two flights as their Chinese family members had to stay behind due to Beijing's quarantine policy.
However, that policy was lifted about a week ago.
Some 1-hundred-70 people reported their intent to leave, but only 1-hundred-40 were able to board the plane.
Sources say that those turned away did not bring the appropriate documentation with them showing the Chinese nationals were their immediate family members.
They'll be placed in a secure quarantine center for two weeks.
