India carried out the evacuation process after the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic and said that Europe is the new epicentre of the deadly virus.
Several students reached out to the Ministry of External Affairs and thanked them for their initiative to bring them back home.
Boarded the special flight arranged by @MEAIndia and @airindiain. Big thanks to all the initiatives taken to bring us home. Great effort by @cgmilan1 in organising everything. @DrSJaishankar @VMBJP pic.twitter.com/SCA4TonvE5— Devi Krishnan (@devirkrishnan) March 14, 2020
Among all European nations, Italy is the worst-hit over 1,400 deaths. The country reported 175 deaths on Saturday alone.
Another group of 234 Indians stuck in Iran, another epicentre of Covid-19, also landed in the Indian national capital in a Mahan Air flight on March 15. These students included 131 students and 103 pilgrims who were then taken to an army quarantine facility in Rajasthan's Jaisalmer.
Amid increasing scare, Air India has cancelled all flights to coronavirus-hit Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Israel, South Korea and Sri Lanka till April 30.
India has brought back its citizens from China, Japan and Iran as part of the evacuation processes.
