    An airplane evacuating as many as 240 Americans from Wuhan was diverted from Ontario Airport to a nearby military airbase late on Tuesday amid a coronavirus outbreak in the Chinese city.

    The U.S. government chartered the plane to fly out diplomats from the U.S. Consulate and other U.S. citizens. It left before dawn local time and was expected to make a refueling stop in Alaska before flying on to Ontario, California.


    But late on Tuesday it was announced the flight would be diverted to March Air Reserve Base in Riverside. San Bernardino County Supervisor Curt Hagman said: 'The CDC just let us know the flight will be directed to March Air Force Base.' He offered no explanation as to why.


    Wuhan is the epicenter of a new virus that has sickened thousands and killed more than 100 with the official death toll now at 132. An official said Tuesday that the plane left the city before dawn Wednesday, China time.


    When the plane arrives in Anchorage, Alaska, passengers are expected to clear customs and go through the Centers for Disease Control screening.


    'Then they will put them back on the plane and then send them on to their final destination,' said Jim Szczesniak, manager of the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. The passengers will be isolated in the airport´s international terminal, which lies mostly dormant in the winter months.
