Bring more than 155 Australian Kids home from Hubei

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!


The Wuhan chronavirus outbreak puts the 20 million Hubei people's live on the line, that includes a total of more than 155 underage kids who are Australian Citizens, where 98% of them are living around the centre of outbreak, the city with more than 11 million population: Wuhan.

The current situation in Wuhan is not even close to being optimistic. The government has cut all public / private transportations, limit to 6000 taxi cars for transporting patients. Access to food supplies, medical supplies and protection gears are extremely limited, and it is indeed a national crisis, especially a provincial crisis for this territory in south centre China.

The longer these kids stay in Wuhan, the chance they are going to be infected greatly increases. Many of them are below 5 years old, and are staying with grand parents because their parents are prohibited to access the Quarantined province. Therefore, if their grand parents are infected, they will be homeless or infected too.

I will share you one hint of individual stories of each of these families: There are pregnant mothers who are due to delivery in few weeks, desperately seeking for help. One of the kid has asthma, and the family is running out of the medication. Many of kids are running out of Milk Powder supplies. Not to mention a great proportion's visitor's visas are due to expiry soon.

Yesterday, the US government has announced plans to evacuate all their nationals from Wuhan, followed by the announcement from the British, French and Russians to do the same thing. Australia is a civilised country just like many of the western countries in the world, and these Australian kids shouldn't be left behind,  WE SHOULD LEAVE NO ONE BEHIND.

THAT BEING SAID, THE PRIORITY OF AUSTRALIANS IN AUSTRALIA WILL STILL BE THE PRIORITY. EVERYONE RETURNING FROM CHINA SHOULD TAKE ENFORCED MEDICAL TEST AND QUARANTINE FOR AT LEAST 2 WEEKS.
