KURNOOL: Parents of the Kurnool girl stuck in Wuhan city of China are eagerly awaiting the return of their daughter this week. China’s positive response on allowing an Indian aircraft to land there for evacuating the remaining Indians has raised the hopes of the family.
Pramila Devi, mother of a girl from Karnool Annem Jyothi, says her daughter has been constantly in touch with her since the outbreak of coronavirus and she is normal.
Jyothi was left behind in Wuhan by the Indian aircraft that had earlier evacuated 670 Indians from the Covid-19 hit Wuhan city in Hubel province of China. She was running a temperature at the time of boarding the flight and hence was refused permission to board. Subsequently, Jyothi made several SOS calls to the government of India that she was in good health, had no symptoms of the suspected virus and that she be evacuated. Banaganapalle MLA Katasani Rami Reddy and Nandyal MP Pocha Bramhananda Reddy have also been persuading the external affairs ministry to make arrangements for bringing the Kurnool girl back from Wuhan.
Incidentally, Jyothi’s marriage is scheduled on March 14.
According to reports, India will send a C-17 military transport aircraft to the Chinese city of Wuhan on Thursday to evacuate Indians from there, while also delivering a consignment of medical supplies for China’s coronavirus-hit people. The C-17 Globemaster is the largest military aircraft in the Indian Air Force’s inventory. The plane can carry large combat equipment, troops and humanitarian aid across long distances in all weather conditions....
