Foreign Affairs Minister Senator Kamina Johnson-Smith says the Jamaican Embassy in Beijing is in contact with members of the Jamaican community in China. This in light of concerns regarding the spread of the coronavirus.
Mrs Johnson-Smith says the Ministry is aware of 28 Jamaicans including Teachers and Students in Wuhan, the epicentre of the outbreak.
She says these persons are keeping in touch with each other and the embassy by way of a WhatsApp group.
The Foreign Affairs Ministry is encouraging persons in Jamaica who have family and associates in China, to make contact with them to determine their situation and inform the Ministry in Kingston of any new circumstances.
