India has airlifted the second batch of its citizens from China's virus-hit Wuhan city.

The Air India flight carrying 323 passengers landed in the Indian capital on Sunday morning.

The evacuated Indians will be quarantined in a specially-prepared facility in Manesar.

The flight also airlifted seven Maldives citizens, with officials confirming that some citizens were not allowed to board as they showed symptoms of the coronavirus.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia has evacuated 10 students from Wuhan in a special chartered flight. 

So far, the flu-likle virus has killed more than 300 people in China and infected over 14,000 others globally.
