"According to our information, by now no decision has been made on the scheme of evacuating foreign citizens from the region," the statement reads.

"Local authorities express readiness to ensure maximum support for foreigners who are currently staying in the province. Now the Chinese side believes that it is more advantageous to keep the current regime of stay," it says.

According to the Russian diplomatic mission, China plans to ensure stable supply of food, essentials and other goods for citizens in Hubei. "It is highly recommended that foreign nationals remain at their places of residence and fully comply with necessary measures on preventing the disease," TASS cited the mission as saying.
